My guest this week is Georgina Higgins, a Script Supervisor, whose recent credits include the Film4 and BFI-backed production Limbo from director Ben Sharrock, which was selected for Cannes this year and very well reviewed at the London Film Festival; a moving drama called Monsoon starring Henry Golding which is on BBC Two tomorrow night and will then be on BBC iPlayer. She also worked on Michaela Coel’s astonishing TV series I May Destroy You, Sky Atlantic & Showtime’s Patrick Melrose and the BAFTA-nominated film Stan & Ollie.

We unpack what it means to be a script supervisor, what the hardest part of the job is, how Georgina prepares and whether she can bear to watch what she works on considering its a job all about continuity and perfection.
