Although the date of my most recent broadcast play is some years ago, I have not
stopped writing. I have concentrated much of the time on corporate
video (having now scripted 350 of them), and also have two feature
films in pre-production. I also have a new stage play being considered in various places.
I am a member of the Board of Advisors of both the US International Film
& Video Festival in Los Angeles and the World Media Festival in Hamburg,
and a former Chairman of the Broadcasting Committee at The Society
Note from ND: Grant's work continues to be popular on Radio 4 Extra. 'Absolute Discretion' and 'The Salamander Chest' were repeated on R4X in 2018, and 'Second Holmes' has been repeated six times, most recently in 2021.
