He Named Me Malala

Very pleased to have recorded the trailer campaign for this hugely impressive new documentary feature from Davis Guggenheim about the inspiring Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager who survived a Taliban attack on her life to become a leading advocate for the rights of children and young women and is the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. The movie opens in the UK on November 6th and is highly recommended.

    The Spirit of Yachting

    Back to IMG this week to record narration for episode 2 of Luca Ceccolini's six-part BBC documentary series The Spirit of Yachting, which follows some of the world's most spectacular boats round the grand prix yacht racing circuit. Episode 1, broadcast on August 9th, featured the Giraglia Cup, one of the most renowned offshore races in the Mediterranean. Over two hundred craft raced 243 nautical miles over three days from the chic harbour of Saint-Tropez to Genoa, Italy via the Giraglia, a rocky outcrop off the northern tip of Corsica. Episode 2 features the Rolex Fastnet Race, an altogether grittier affair in the cold offshore waters of southern England, with a record fleet of 356 yachts heading off from Cowes to the Fastnet Rock in the Irish Sea, via the Scilly Isles, and back to Plymouth. Some spectacular footage, well worth catching on BBC World, Sun Oct 11th, 20:30 UK time.

    Spooks - The Greater Good

    Spooks was a huge hit on British TV and internationally so it was only a matter for time before it hit the big screen, and here it is with the show's sharp action, stylish settings and frankly baffling plots all ramped up for the big screen. Hunk of the moment Kit Harrington takes time out from Game of Thrones duty to join classy Brit veteran star Peter Firth from the TV show in Bharat Nalluri's pacy Bourne-meets-Mission Impossible thriller. I was pleased to be asked to add my dulcets to these very slick trailers produced by Intermission Films.
