the media lunch club

the media lunch club was established in 1994, by producer Martin Cahill, as a non-profit making, and politically neutral, networking society and has grown to become the film, tv and media industry's premiere café du commerce.


Monthly lunches are held in London's West End (and a Brighton away-day lunch during the summer), with an invited guest speaker. Some of our previous speakers include:

Producers: Tim Bevan, Stephen Evans, Rebecca O'Brien, Richard Holmes, Jeremy Thomas, Duncan Kenworthy, Michael Kuhn, Nik Powell, Marc Samuelson, Richard Holmes, Michael Deeley, Simon Channing-Williams and Jeremy Bolt.


Directors: Sir Alan Parker, Waris Hussein, Roy Ward Baker, Vic Armstrong, Jack Cardiff, Ronnie Neame, Beban Kidron, Lewis Gilbert, John Glen, Guy Hamilton and Ray Harryhausen.

Executives: Duncan Reid (Ingenious), Greg Dyke, Ian Hutchinson (Silver Reel) Amanda Nevill (BFI), Stewart Till, Lenny Crooks (formerly of New Cinema Fund, UK Film Council), David Thompson, Steve Christian (Pinewood Films), Peter Bennett-Jones, Hilary Davis (Bankside); Mike Goodridge (Protagonist) John Woodward (former CEO, UK Film Council), Jane Lighting (former CEO Channel 5) and Lorraine Heggesey, Sara Geater.


Plus: Sir Roger Moore; Dick Clement; Honor Blackman; Sir Ronald Harwood; Patsy Pollock, Jon Hubbard and Jeremy Zimmerman (Casting Directors); David Cooke (director of BBFC); Dr Kim Howells MP & Shaun Woodward MP (former Film Ministers); Victor Spinetti (Actor); Nina Myscow (Broadcaster); Richard 'Jaws' Kiel (Actor \ Writer); Simon George (Ealing Studios Productions); Simon Oakes (Hammer Films) & many, many more.

the media lunch club also hosts a networking evening each year, our prestigious ' Martin Cahill Memorial Lecture'.


In 2009, we started holding the additional and occasional 'Briefing Lunches', to focus on a more specialised subject in an intimate board-room setting such as, most recently, a "Brexit and the implications on film industry" . These lunches are free, and have proven very popular.


Membership is inexpensive and open to all in the media business.


On April 19th Sir Alan Parker joined us for our 200th lunch, and cut the special birthday cake!

Sound Editor

Friday June 29th 2018


Colin’s first job in the industry was as runner for Alexander Korda's new animation company, and after three years with Korda he got a job at Anglo Scottish, a company based at Shepperton Studios, where he later received a phone call from Sound Designer Don Deacon saying that he was about to start a film and was looking for an assistant and asked if Colin was interested.


The rest, as they say, is history and set Colin on a career path of more than 80 films working with such luminaries as Otto Preminger, Richard Burton, Nastassja Kinski, Richard Attenborough, Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, Jamie Lee Curtis, David Bowie, Peter Sellers, Michael Caine, Roger Moore, Sidney Poitier, Terry Gilliam, Kenneth Branagh … and films including Curse of the Fly, The Quiller Memorandum, four Carry On films - Up the Khyber, Again Doctor, Camping and Up the Jungle; 10 Rillington Place, Soft Beds, Hard Battles,The Man Who Fell to Earth, six James Bond films - The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, A View To A Kill, and The Living Daylights; Nineteen Eighty-Four, Supergirl, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, The Remains of the Day, Emma, Fierce Creatures, Pushing Tin and Ned Kelly.


Offering an insight into the world of sound design and with wonderful anecdotes about the people he’s worked with, Colin is a very interesting and entertaining lunch guest!
