My Week In Media: Amanda Hamilton
Monday 14 January 2008
Last week I read...
I read The Times and The Scotsman over my mid-morning coffee, and The Week helps me catch up on everything before my Sunday programme. I read AA Gill every week, and I like Dom Joly and India Knight, too. I've been told I need to read more celebrity tat, so Grazia is a nice one to wind down with. I also like Psychologies because a lot of the work I do touches on the mind, and they have interesting articles that I can often use to work through with my clients. I tend to read the health pages in the Daily Mail on Tuesday. I have to keep up with lots of medical journals with awful titles as well. I've been reading Tiddler to my toddler, from the Gruffalo series. She adores it.
Last week I watched...
I normally watch documentaries rather than drama, and my daughter makes me watch the DVD of Ice Age over and over again. Often what happens is that someone interesting comes on to my programme and I then catch up with their shows afterwards, so I've been watching Long Way Down since I met Charley Boorman, and Top Gear since I worked with Richard Hammond. I've always loved Tribe and Planet Earth, too. I'm a big fan of comedy panel shows like QI and Have I Got News for You. I would love to be on Strictly Come Dancing but my schedule normally means I'm in an airport on Saturday evenings.
Last week I listened to...
There's always a radio playing in my house, a mixture of talk and music. I'm a big fan of Nicky Campbell on Five Live. He's great, and he grew up about two streets away from where I live in Edinburgh. I'm glad Chris Evans is back on Radio 2, and I listen to him whenever I'm driving somewhere in the afternoons. I like a bit of Radio 4 as well – Woman's Hour and Excess Baggage.
Last week I surfed...
The main news sites are my first source of news most days. I'm always referencing health sites, but recently I've been setting up my own site so I spend most of my time on that!
