The Write Way To Grange Hill!

gh40Not many cast members and characters managed to survive a full set of school years at Grange Hill, but one of the longest serving members of staff was Margaret Simpson. Unseen on screen, many of Grange Hill’s classic moments would not have existed without her; she wrote the scripts! Margaret started writing for Grange Hill during Series Margaret Simpson2 and continued until Series 15, writing more episodes of Grange Hill than nearly every other writer. As part of our GH@40 celebrations this year, Grange Hill Gold has been able to speak to Margaret for an exclusive interview. Click here to read Margaret’s recollections about her time writing for Britain’s best loved school!



Keep visiting Grange Hill Gold for more exclusives; coming soon are interviews with Darren Cudjoe (Clark Trent) and producer Ronald Smedley.
