I’ve been very lucky with media coverage. In December 2018 the Emmeline Pankhurst statue unveiling, to a 7000-strong crowd, received blanket national tv and radio news coverage, with extensive newspaper coverage. Other highlights? Being interviewed by Naga and Charlie on BBC Breakfast about statues of women; Head of Tate, Maria Balshaw, at the Charleston Festival interviewing me about public art and politics; talking to a 50,000-strong football crowd in Manchester; being in the BBC One documentary Making of a Militant with Sally Lindsay; Jeremy Paxman asking three questions about my statues on University Challenge; and the Gresley statue popping up on Have I Got News for You . Some more highlights below, with thanks to all my interviewers, filmers, and photographers (including Stuart Walker, Roger Bamber, Andy Fallon, Nigel Kingston, Steven Roberts, Helen Tither).
