Description
  • Chris Atkins is a screenwriter, film producer and director.
  • Chris Atkins is a British journalist and documentary film maker. He gave evidence to the Leveson Inquiry into the ethics of the British press. Atkins was educated at Bromsgrove School from 1986–1994. His early career involved making low-budget dramas with director Richard Jobson, including Jobson's debut feature film, 16 Years of Alcohol, and subsequent works The Purifiers and A Woman in Winter. In 2013 he produced the Panorama episode "All in a Good Cause", which looked into unethical investments made by charities such as Comic Relief, the aftermath of which resulted in Atkins claiming he had, "turned into the comedy establishment's most hated man". His work includes Taking Liberties and Starsuckers. He has made documentaries for the Channel 4 television series Dispatches, for which he spent a year undercover investigating the illegal trade in confidential data, and occasionally writes for The Guardian. While making Taking Liberties, Atkins was held under anti-terror laws when he tried to speak with the Home Secretary John Reid at the 2006 Labour Party conference. The film was nominated for the "Carl Foreman award for special achievement by a British director, writer or producer in their first feature film" in the 2008 British Academy Film Awards. Wikipedia
