Cultural Life: Wayne Hemingway, fashion designer
Friday 15 May 2009
'The Spirit Level: Why More Equal Societies Almost Always Do Better' by Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett is a must-read for anyone with a social conscience, about the damaging effect of inequality in rich countries.
The reason I have a TV is to watch England play cricket, and Blackburn Rovers play football. I loved 'Top Dogs: Adventures In War, Sea And Ice' on BBC2, in which three incredible men, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, John Simpson and Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, engaged in courageous expeditions. This is reality TV as it should be – no empty-headed celebrity wannabes here.
One of the indulgences of our house is a handy home cinema. Sky Movies Indie is great; I tend to video 10 films a week. I could watch 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid' until the cows come home.
Soul singer Nicole Willis is brilliant; she makes Duffy and Adele look anodyne. Much music today lacks integrity.
