First Prize at Anthropos Documentary Festival, Los Angeles. TV Suisse Rommande Prize. Dineen cheerfully refers to the job as a bit of “prostitution”, and makes it clear that it isn’t a documentary. “You can’t call it a documentary; there is no spirit of inquiry. I am doing something for a particular reason – the company has self-loathing issues,” she says. The Grenfell Tower fire last July changed everything, says Dineen, and she is currently considering her next move – mindful that she doesn’t want to make a film specifically about the tragedy, wary of how opportunistic that might seem. She hopes to make a film about the area that will tell not only the story of Grenfell, but also the wider story of the local councillors who faced the moral opprobrium of residents. “I have to work out how to take it forward,” she says. “There is the community who are fighting for its survival, but I would also like to film compassionately with Kensington councillors too, at least the ones who understand the situation.

Retrieved 21 March 2018.Dineen, 48, first came to public attention in 1985 with Home from the Hill, a documentary she made at film school about a retired colonel, Hilary Hook, making his return to the UK from Africa. Later, she filmed The Ark, about London zoo, Heart of the Angel, about Angel tube station in London, and In the Company of Men, about a company of the Welsh Guards regiment of the British army. There were more surprising films, too: a 10-minute party election broadcast about Tony Blair, for example, screened in 1997, and Geri, about Geri Halliwell, filmed in the aftermath of her departure from the Spice Girls. In 2002, she returned to more identifiably Dineen territory with The Lord's Tale, about the reformation of the House of Lords. The Lie of the Land, which was also screened at this year's Hay festival, was really born out of The Lord's Tale. "I was there filming when the fox hunting bill came lumbering through after the Commons and all that," she explains, "and I just thought, why?"

They say: ‘This is John, he makes steel’ and ‘This is Paul, he runs a prison.’ If you are me and you’re nosy and think access to places is key, it is fabulous.”

Part of what was depressing staff was that their families had very little understanding of what they were doing, and only saw the constant flow of negative headlines, which is why he turned to Dineen. He describes the film as a “mirror on the company”, and as “about as far from being a guff- and puff-filled corporate video as you can imagine”. Molly Dineen has shot pop stars, primates – and prime ministers. As her first film in a decade comes to BBC Two, she talks to Ben Lawrence And if you create a lifestyle that means you're in a hurry, you end up in the supermarket and running around and doing all the things that you know are wrong - well, that you know are not contributing to the way of life you'd like to live."

The Lie of the Land (Channel 4, 2007) – On the eve of the fox hunting ban, Dineen explores life in the British countryside, where farmers struggle to survive under the weight of government legislation and national indifference towards rural communities.

As played on the BBC, emphasising Dineen’s BAFTA-winning credentials and the three years it took to make the film. She toyed with the idea of making a documentary about the end of fox hunting, but as she began filming she grew increasingly interested in an uneasy transaction that takes place between the hunts and the farming community, the "flesh run" - for a nominal sum, the hunt collects the unwanted cattle it would cost the farmers vast sums to dispose of properly and use the meat to feed their hunting dogs. a b c d e f g h Walsh, John (26 April 2011).

I’m always accessible, if someone sees me and wants to talk to me, I’ll stop and talk to them.

Although the film shows workers in Serco’s prisons and its asylum housing contracts in the UK, there is no mention of Yarl’s Wood – the immigration detention centre, where Channel 4’s undercover filming last year exposed staff members referring to residents as bitches and animals, and where the previous year 10 staff members lost their jobs after allegations of sexual assault and improper sexual conduct. There is also no mention of the controversial – and often very profitable – asylum detention centres in Australia. Nor is there any reference to the Serious Fraud Office investigation into the tagging contract. An asylum-seeker thanks Serco for a small room, saying: 'To me it is a villa' They had a reggae show called Bob and Beyond, but when I looked at the catalogue it was like 600 Bob Marley songs and nothing else.
