B4 - Do you have any other areas of interest you wish to tell other people about? - If yes, please describe:
I am a big fan of older TV from the 70s and 80s mainly. Most of the stuff that is covered by the “TV Cream Era” (see for details of what this means), especially things like Survivors, Day of the Triffids, Blakes 7, The Prisoner etc.

C1 - What are your connections with Reading?
I used to live in Lower Earley (2000-2001) and also right next to the Oracle on that new estate in the centre (2002-2003). My company has its offices in Berkshire House on King’s Rd.

C2 - What do you think is the best thing about Reading?
There is a lot going on and it has a vibrant centre. It is also very easy to travel to other places with Reading Station being one of the main interchanges in the country. The Majedski stadium is a great sporting venue.

C3 - What do you think is the worst thing about Reading?
Some areas are not great and there is often a lot of rubbish lying around.

C4 - How would you like to see Reading change in the future?
I think more initiatives to keep it clean and also to reduce the amount driving in and out of the town would be good.

Would you be interested in participating in future Reading List Blog Network initiatives?
