On Sunday night, Ridley Scott received the BAFTA Fellowship Award. He has made some of the most well-known and classic films over the years, including Alien, Gladiator and Blade Runner. It was a good evening for my film of the year (so far): 3 Billboards outside Ebbing Missouri, which won 5 awards. He talked about his progress to Art school, based on one GCE: something which would be less likely to happen today, and eventually to the Royal College of Art, where he began making films.
Teaching is the most important of all professions. Sort that out and social problems will get sorted out
