BBC interview goes viral

The bias apparent in my BBC interview about Fidel Castro was so appalling it reminded me again why I wanted to write the musical. Apparently many agree as it seems to have gone viral . I write about how an academic is driven to write a musical as the only way to put the story of Fidel Castro and the Cuban revolution in context in http://theconversation.com/our-musical-fidel-will-try-to-puncture-the-polarised-debate-about-castro-69508. 

 

Sad news Fidel has died

What sad news to wake up to. The negative bias in the way Fidel is being portrayed makes me realise anew how completely the US Miami perspective has dominated. It makes me realise again why this musical is important. feel free to contact me on fidel@soton.ac.uk if you’d like to talk to me about why I’m doing this musical.
