Sadly Ambrose died in 2021, but we’ll try and keep this site live, that he cared so much about. Here’s what his colleagues at talkRADIO had to say about him.

My name is Ambrose Heron and I edit this website.

It was set up in 2004 to cover films and has since become a hub for film related content, such as cinema and DVD releases, interviews and anything that took my interest.

I am also a freelance writer and broadcaster based in the UK who mostly writes and broadcasts about film, although I have also worked as a radio producer for several years (see my LinkedIn profile for the full CV).

In addition, you might have heard me discussing films on national radio stations such as BBC Radio 2 (with Zoe BallRichard Madeley and Lynn Parsons), BBC 6 Music (with Nemone) and TalkSPORT (Ian Collins and various other shows including Hawksbee and Jacobs).

Other stations I’ve worked for on a local level are BBC London, BBC Solent (South Coast) and City Beat FM (Belfast).

If you want to hear me talking to actors (Leonardo DiCaprio, Emily Blunt, Robert Pattinson), directors (Danny Boyle, Alfonso CuaronDarren Aronofsky, David Cronenberg and Werner Herzog) or cinematographers (Christopher Doyle) then check out my extensive interview archive here:

In addition I also produce an interview podcast for this site (subscribe here) and in the past I’ve presented for Creation Podcasts.

I’m also active on social media, mostly via Twitter (@filmdetail), but also have a presence on Facebook if you want to discuss films there instead of the comments section on the blog.
