Opinion: Ricky Gervais and Truth In Comedy

If we have learnt one thing this week it is that it doesn’t matter what you do, if you put something on your computer the chances are people will see it even if you delete it. Ricky Gervais has been in trouble for tweeting about famous people’s nude pictures being leaked, writing “Celebrities, make it harder for hackers to get nude pics of you from your computer by not putting nude pics of yourself on your computer.” 


News: David Brent Movie Is Happening

Ricky Gervais is developing a brand new movie, based on his creation David Brent, the focus of his global hit series, The Office.

Life on the Road is currently being developed with BBC Films and goes in to production in 2015. We find out what Brent is doing now and what's happened in the last 15 years since his redundancy from his beloved Wernham Hogg.

Opinion: What Ricky Gervais & Russell Brand Taught Me

Never throw anything away. I was reminded of this when I was watching a BBC2 documentary about journalist Lynn Barber recently. At one point interviewer Alan Yentob and Barber visited the north London home of 91-year-old newspaper archivist Edda Tasiemka. She had footballers in the toilet, film stars under stairs, politicians in the hall. I mean she had cuttings about them. Tasiemka is a legend among journalists of the pre-Google age. She was the first port of call when they were researching a story.
