In 2009 Samantha Brick revealed in the Daily Mail her no-holes-barred inside story of her experience of launching and trying to run an all-female television production company. It provides a fascinating insight into the reality of ‘women in the workplace’. My eternal thanks to a Scottish donor for pointing me to an audio file published last month. The narrator is a Scottish gentleman commenting on the story, line by line… and it’s a gem.
If you find the narration ‘freezes’ from time to time, as I did, just ‘rewind’ a second or two, and normal service should resume. It’s worth this small inconvenience to hear the whole piece, trust me. Don’t listen to the piece if you’re offended by occasional strong language, but otherwise, enjoy:
Our donor believes from the accent that the narrator is from Glasgow or Ayrshire. We’ve posted one or two of the man’s pieces before. They always crack us up, they’re hilarious precisely on account of being so damned honest.
