Movies4Kids speaks!

Last week, I was interviewed by the lovely Viv Oyolu for her radio show Dream Corner. The interview is now available to hear online via her website – just click on and there I am. I talk about movies I love, summer movies for the family and even a couple of grown-up films worth seeking out when it’s raining outside (and let’s face it, when is it not raining at the moment?)

Hope you like it!
