Featured author: Jonathan Stedall
Jonathan Stedall joined the BBC as a producer in 1963, where he then worked for twenty-seven years. His earlier career had included stage managing in repertory theatre, work in the cutting-rooms at Pinewood and as a floor manager and then director in commercial television. He won a British Film Academy Award for his documentary In Need of Special Care about a Camphill school in Scotland for children with special needs. This was typical of the gentle and sensitive style of film-making that has won him so much praise over the years.More
He has been an independent documentary film-maker since 1990. His most recent two-part documentary, The Challenge of Rudolf Steiner, looked at the life of Rudolf Steiner and the influence of his ideas on a whole range of contemporary activities, including education, agriculture, medicine, social and financial issues and the arts.
His book, Where on Earth is Heaven?, was inspired by a question posed by his young son, and looks at the challenging issues of living and dying, looking and seeing, heaven and earth, and human potential.
