Here are ideas for July/August features. Some of them may be in your diary already. Some of them may be added to your diary after reading this. Some features may be written by in-house journalists. But maybe, just maybe, I can write something for you.
Let me know what you want, word count, deadline and fee and I will get to work.
Here are some ideas and, if I can help, I look forward to hearing from you. firstname.lastname@example.org
WATCH OUT FOR MY PIECES ON:
30 July - 80 years ago, The Beano comic was launched. In our house, we had the Bunty for the girls (although I was quite partial to it too), the Hotspur for the boys and the Beano, Dandy and Beezer for all of us. The extra treat was getting the annuals at Christmas. Dennis the Menace and Gnasher, Minnie the Minx, The Bash Street Kids, Roger the Dodger and Billy Whizz. Brilliant stuff.
31 July - 50 years ago, the BBC aired the first episode of Dad's Army, as fresh and funny today as it was back then. The chemistry and comedy is so good that it could not be replicated, evidenced by the awful 2016 film version. Why has it kept its freshness and hilarity for half a century?
FREELANCE WRITING IDEAS FOR AUGUST 2018:
4 August – (Largely forgotten but interesting) Derry actor/director Noel Willman born 100 years ago
6 August – Andy Warhol would have been 90.
16 August – Madonna will be 60.
25 August – Richard Greene (the only Robin Hood) born 100 years ago. TV gold.
29 August – Michael Jackson would have been 60.
31 August – The first Carry On film, Carry on Sergeant, was released 60 years ago. It starred William Hartnell, Bob Monkhouse and Kenneth Connor. In this age of thin-skinnery, what do we make of this series of films nowadays?
