This week, the boys train their guns on the big one: James Cameron! Following on from their profile episodes on Christopher Nolan and Stanley Kubrick, Fikri and Muz take a closer look at the influential filmmakers career. Starting from the very beginning, they leave a lot of stones (but perhaps not all) unturned as they discover what made James Cameron the director he is today, and the key themes of his major films. All this and more on the only film podcast in the world to be done by two government servants! (probably)
