See Manchester icon Russell T Davies talking about his TV writing career – highlights of which include reviving Dr Who after a 16-year hiatus, and writing the genre-cracking gay drama Queer as Folk – with literature’s grand dame Jeanette Winterson as part of the University of Manchester’s Centre for New Writing’s must-see programme. Previous guests include A. M. Homes – but for this one-off, fans will be treated to series of screen clips as Winterson leads a discussion about Davies’ work, politics, creativity and the role of TV in society.
