William Gallagher

William Gallagher is a writer, dramatist and lecturer. He writes Doctor Who audio dramas, stage plays and has an extensive British journalism experience. In 2013 he had a quarter of a million words published and out of that year and particularly the month most of it was due, he created The Blank Screen book and workshop. It’s a practical guide to being a productive writer in the real world: getting started, keeping going, staring down distractions and wringing more out of your computer and your kettle.

"Love this book, it is clever and witty and genuinely grapples with making an extra hour (or two) in the day. Inspiring and liberating. A real Can-Do manual. No creative should be without it."

– Barbara Machin, creator of Waking the Dead

William is also the author of the British Film Institute book BFI TV Classics: The Beiderbecke Affair, B7 Media’s Blake’s 7: The Ultimate Guide and co-author of Radio Times Cover Story. His work has appeared regularly in Radio Times magazine and BBC News Online plus The Independent, the Los Angeles Times and on BBC local and national radio. He's won awards for his stage drama and his photography has been published in international jewellery books.

William is also a performer on the spoken-word cabaret circuit in Birmingham and teaches writing in schools. He’s taught in prisons and also in universities where he’s lectured to both students and professors.

He once had afternoon tea on a Russian nuclear submarine and regrets calling the place a dive.

Des Tong

As a musician I have travelled all over the world touring and recording with major artistes far too many to list. (I was Bass player with Manchester band Sad Cafe.)

During this time I became interested in the production and writing side of the Music Industry.

I was a producer for BBC Radio 1 & 2,  Music Director for Granada TV’s “Weekend” and for YTV, Central TV, and ILR station Signal Radio.

I wrote, produced and played on scores of commercial product and radio station jingles.

As a commercial record producer I had success with the No7 hit for Damian, “The Time Warp” earning a silver disc for sales in excess of 250,000.

In 1994  I joined Centregold/US Gold as Head of Music, with a brief to introduce quality music to computer games utilising my Music Industry background.

Among several titles I worked on was “Johnny Bazookatone” which was critically acclaimed as “The best music on Playstation”.

The creation of AudioMotion as a facilities house for TV, Video and Computer Games in 1997 enabled me to expand my own audio talents  providing music, sound design and voice-overs for  many exciting projects.

I booked and worked with top voice talents including, Steve Coogan (Alan Partridge), The Late Michael Sheard (Grange Hill, Auf Wiedersehen Pet), John Culshaw (Dead Ringers),  John Roder (BBC Match of The Day), Anthony Daniels (Star Wars C3PO) amongst many others.

Now, utilising my experience in sound design and modern technology I have created Soundscapes as an exciting new method of introducing the awareness of sound into the teaching of literacy.
