MacTaggart Lecture 2018: Michaela Coel

In this bonus episode, we hear the full, unedited recording of this year’s MacTaggart Lecture, delivered at the Edinburgh International TV Festival by actor, writer and producer Michaela Coel.

You’ll hear her rise to fame – from an estate in Tower Hamlets to the BAFTA-winning success of Chewing Gum on E4 – as well as a brutally honest account of what it took go get that series made.

This podcast contains strong, and sometimes racist, language.

A PPM Production, produced by Matt Hill. Thank you to the Edinburgh International Television Festival for sharing this audio with our listeners. You can find more great sessions from this year on their YouTube channel.
