On the 1st November Clive Coleman received the General Council of the Bar's Legal Reporting Award for Broadcasting. Among stiff competition from other broadcasters across television and radio networks, the award recognised the high quality coverage given to important legal issues by Law In Action. The award was presented to Clive at a packed Bar Conference by the Law Lord, Lord Neuberger, and in fact, the two programmes submitted for consideration came in first and second - so Clive got runner up as well! Previous winners include Joshua Rosenberg, Channel 4 News, and the BBC's Jon Silverman.
Clive is currently presenting Law In Action on Tuesdays at 4 pm on Radio 4.
SPENDING MY INHERITANCE
Clive's new sit-com Spending My Inheritance starring Kris Marshall (My Family, Love Actually) Raquel Cassidy (Lead Balloon, Party Animals), Judy Parfitt (Little Doritt and loads of stuff), Kenneth Cranham (even more stuff) and brilliant newcomer Antonia Thomas, starts on BBC Radio 4 this Monday 17th November at 11.30 am and runs for six weeks - at the same time each week.
The series focuses on the tension between the newly retired 60 plus generation (with final salary pensions, big houses and bags of energy) and their knackered,cash strapped IPOD (Insecure, Pressurised, Over Taxed and Debt Ridden) kids struggling with a work-life balance that is doing their heads in. It¹s more than a little frustrating to be sitting on a small fortune in the midst of a credit crunchŠbut it's tied up in your parents property, and they¹re suddenly talking equity release and business class air fares!
Clive will be talking about the series on Radio 4's Loose Ends at 6.15 pm this Saturday with Clive Anderson, and guests Jim Davidson, Keith Allen and Mark Strong. Programme link below for listen again.
