When BBC Oxford hired me to launch their brand new evening schedule with a weekly 2-hour Wednesday programme (from 9 May 2018), I took this website offline, ready for a re-design.

Work picked up over the next year as I began presenting a 3-hour weekly Friday evening show called ‘Time Out With Laurie Bailey‘ (from 24 Aug 2018) and began regularly covering shifts on BBC Oxford’s Early Breakfast and Drivetime shows.

In short, this website fell off my to-do list while I worked 5 days a week on existing marketing clients and BBC programmes – so you’ll see a big gap on this website between my weekly film critic appearances in 2018 (which actually carried on until Jan 2019) and my new programmes The New Media Show and Live @ BBC Oxford – both of which started at the end of September 2019!

I originally de-published my old film critic posts to reflect my new work, but recently decided to put them back online as a reference for the many appearances I made as a BBC film critic & commentator.
