LITTLE DID YOU KNOW - The Confessions of David McGillivray

AUTOGRAPHED FIRST EDITION!

"Over-sharing as an art-form"  --  Julian Clary

LITTLE DID YOU KNOW is the eagerly-awaited autobiography of writer, critic, journalist, broadcaster and all round raconteur, David McGillivray.


In this sensational memoir, illustrated with many previously unseen photos, McGillivray reveals how his anti-establishment lifestyle stretches back to his teenage years and journeys six decades, taking us through the cocaine-lined world of London’s media industry, the tragic heights of the AIDS epidemic and the sinful celluloid backstreets of Soho. It’s a colourful picaresque account of the capital from every angle.

Described by Jonathan Ross as “a comedy legend”, Alan Jones as “a horror icon” and Matthew Sweet as “the Truffaut of smut”, David McGillivray has enjoyed a colourful career in many areas of lowbrow entertainment. But not even his closest associates, let alone fans of his horror films and comedy plays, could have predicted the extraordinary turn his career took around the turn of the 21st century.

From 1998–2011, McGillivray hosted London’s wildest parties at his home in London’s sleazy King’s Cross district. They were attended by some of the biggest names of stage, screen, music and fashion. The revelations of what went on under the figurative noses of law enforcement agencies and the literal noses of "McG" and his high-flying guests are not for the faint-hearted.

The confessions of this outrageously funny man may amaze and amuse, scandalise or shock you. And you may never look back on Millennium Night in quite the same light again...

Little Did You Know is disgraceful, indefensible… and utterly unforgettable.

 

About the Author - The grandson of an acrobat, David McGillivray knew from the age of four and a half that he wanted to get into the movies. His wish was granted virtually from the day he was expelled from school – except that, instead of starring in films, he packed them. Briefly the UK’s youngest film critic, McGillivray wrote his first film – a travelogue about Yugoslavia – when he was 23, then moved on to a succession of cheap shockers and skin flicks. After Prime Minister Thatcher dealt killer blows to the UK’s independent film industry, McGillivray found alternative employment in radio, TV and theatre, becoming Julian Clary’s long-serving scriptwriter. Around the year 2000 he put these careers temporarily on hold to dabble in another form of exploitation, but one closely associated with the more secretive side of show business. This is all revealed in his latest book, Little Did You Know: The Confessions of David McGillivray.

WORST FEARS

PAL format Region Free DVD, with the cover personally signed by David McGillivray

Our fears are usually worse than the reality - but not always. Sometimes, things are even worse than we fear.
Seven nightmarish tales from legendary British horror film writer and producer David McGillivray: collaborator with Pete Walker and Norman J. Warren, and the fiendish screenwriter behind House of Whipcord, Frightmare, House of Mortal Sin, Schizo, Satan’s Slave and Terror.
The greater part of our fears lies below the surface of awareness, embedded in the terrors of our unconscious. It’s easy to turn away from the part we can see, like a child pretending it’s not there. But if we start pulling the threads and disturb where our fears have taken root, we risk dragging our worst nightmares into the light...
For the first time on DVD and featuring all-new material, Worst Fears is in the blood-soaked tradition of classic Hammer and Amicus anthologies, with a dash of BBC Ghost Stories and Tales of the Unexpected. Includes the award-winning In The Place Of The Dead.
Filmed on location in Marrakech, Lisbon, Nice and London, the remarkable cast includes Rebecca Santos (Seed of Chucky), Fenella Fielding (Carry On Screaming!), Rosie Alvarez (Casualty), Victor Spinetti (Help!, The Krays), Holly de Jong (The Last Horror Film, Electric Dreams), Sir Clement Freud (Minced Morsels), Anna Wing (Xtro, The Blood on Satan’s Claw, Eastenders), Ben Pullen (Dark Knight) - and McGillivray himself.
"The worst fears are those which you absolutely know will be borne out, but nobody else recognises - so you are alone with them." - Consultant Psychiatrist
