I Am Not A Number, is written and moderated by writer, broadcaster and lecturer, Chris Jury
After studying at Drama & English at Hull University, Chris started his career as an actor appearing predominantly in fringe theatre before becoming best known for playing Eric Catchpole in over 60 episodes of the BBC’s antique classic, Lovejoy.
He then became a producer, writer & director working for 15 years in theatre, film & TV before being appointed as the Senior Lecturer in Recorded Media in the School Of Music & Performing Arts at Bath Spa University in 2008.
His interest in philosophy began in 1994 when he casually read, The Everything You Need to Know About Philosophy Book. Since then he has been pursuing the subject as an enthusiastic, not to say obsessed, amateur. He has attempted to engage with professional academic philosophy on 2 occasions; in 2001 embarking on a Philosophy MA with the Open University and in 2008 embarking on an MPhil at Hull University. In both cases he realised that the narrow and highly abstracted nature of the study would never satisfy his broad cross-disciplinary interests and in both cases he withdrew, choosing instead to pursue his interest in the subject through freelance writing, broadcasting and blogging.
As well as lecturing at Bath Spa and writing, I Am Not a Number, he runs the political theatre company, Public Domain, and presents, Agitpop, a pop & politics radio discussion programme on North Cotswold Community Radio http://northcotswoldonline.com/
