Fancy. “That’s how we’ll write the next chapter in the innovation of publishing administration and be the market leader in this crucial area”, she says. She said some other stuff before that, but it wouldn’t be any fun if you knew what was going to happen.



The NME has launched a new Australian version of its website, with its first NME Australia digital edition featuring a cover interview with Amyl And The Sniffers. The sixteen million unique users who access the NME website from down under each month will now get more content focussed on their own music scene. February’s returning NME Awards will also include three Australia-specific prize categories.

Stormzy will give a reading from St Luke’s Gospel on BBC One on Christmas Day. “Every year we look for people to bring the Christmas story alive”, says BBC Studios exec producer Hugh Faupel. “This year we are delighted that Stormzy accepted the invitation to retell the timeless story of the first Christmas and hopefully bring it to a new audience”. The programme will air at 11.50pm on Christmas Day.
