Colin Bennett Interview

...
Well, Bennett's had his say, so I suppose I'd better have mine. This is how it all came about...
I met Colin Bennett when we worked together as actors in a touring stage show. As we were both determined to be writers and seemed to have a lot in common, we started to write together. We didn't sell much but we laughed a hell of a lot.
In the course of time, Bennett directed the Harry Nilsson musical 'The Point at the Mermaid' and the show starred Mickey Dolenz.
...
Dolenz approached Bennett with an idea for a series, and Bennett approached me. Dolenz gave us a very rough outline, about a girl called Luna living on the moon some time in the future, and more-or-less gave us carte-blanche to develop it.
...
Now, Bennett and I have a deep love of cheap jokes; the cheaper the better and I can tell you that a good 75% of our writing time was spent creating (and, of course, hysterically laughing at) cheap jokes. (Andy: "Eat your greens; they're good for you" Brat: "But I've eaten all my blues and yellows...")
...
By the time the deal was struck, Bennett and I had been devising the show for well over a year, so that when the commission came, the scripts virtually wrote themselves.
...
Whereas Bennett went on to become a TV producer, I carried on acting.
...
Bennett is still one of my best buddies.


Colin Bennett: Looking for Orthon

www.paraview.com [cached]

by Colin Bennett

...
In a literary tour-de-force, Colin Bennett advances the daring thesis “that the defining moment of the twentieth century will prove to be 12.30 pm on Thursday, 20 November, 1952, when George Adamski met Orthon, a long-haired youth from Venus.
...
"Bennett walks a subtle, sophisticated, and brilliant line between idolatry on the one hand and harsh scientific scepticism on the other. -- Gazelle Books Esoterica Catalogue
...
One thing is for sure you can’t ignore Looking for Orthon by Colin Bennett.” -- C. Whitlock, UFO UK

Colin Bennett
COLIN BENNETT was born in Robin Hood’s Sherwood Forest, within arrow-shot of the Sheriff of Nottingham’s castle. He left school after studying mathematics and science, became a professional musician, then a mercenary soldier for a time, before reading English at Balliol College, University of Oxford. He had several plays performed on the professional stage in London, including the Royal Court Theatre, before retraining as an electronics engineer to cure what he calls a bad dose of left-liberal decadence. He then ran his own electronics consultancy and printing firm. He has had two novels published, The Infantryman’s Fear of Open Country, and The Entertainment Bomb , and he lives within spear-throwing distance of Portobello Road

Just about the best and most thorough sources of Chile biking information is http://www.chipsites.com/chile-travel/extreme-sports-cycling.html, a site maintained by Colin Bennett. Bennett is a writer, cyclist and English teacher living in Santiago. He says that urban and trail biking are catching on in Santiago, but the infrastructure and good attitudes of drivers are a little slow to catch up. "The Chilean government launched a campaign last summer to promote the use of bicycles called Bicivilízate, which loosely translates to 'Civilize Yourself By Riding a Bicycle,'" Bennett says.
