Sally Wainwright in conversation with Russell T Davies at the 2016 Edinburgh International Television Festival

Olly Mann introduces one of The Media Podcast’s favourite sessions from this year’s Edinburgh International Television Festival: Sally Wainwright, writer (and often director) of Happy Valley, is quizzed by friend and fellow writer Russell T. Davies (Queer As Folk, Doctor Who) on her career.

From working on Coronation Street and creating At Home With The Braithwaites, to recent successes Last Tango In Halifax and Happy Valley, Sally discusses her craft, making the leap from writing to directing and shares the best advice she’s ever been given.
