‘Greatest 80’s Movies’ Interview

"James was absolutely completely and utterly blooming well lovely and had amazing insight as well as passion. A consummate pro who loves his job. I interviewed him when he first started out for the ‘I Love’ series and he was great then and hasn’t lost any enthusiasm over time."

BAFTAs’ Red Carpet coverage

"James did a fantastic job for us last night in pretty awful conditions – sideways rain and sub-zero temperatures are hardly conducive to a glamorous live red carpet  event, but James battled on impressively. His input was great and he kept things ticking along brilliantly at that end of the carpet and helped create the energy we wanted for the show."
