Alistair Rutherford is a writer for the screen, stage and BBC radio.
With fifteen years of professional experience Alistair has been commissioned by the BBC [Radio 4, Radio Scotland, BBC1 Scotland], Ko Lik Film, Encaptivate Film, Storymix (Sweden) and Stroke Association UK.
He writes original stories as well as working closely with producers and directors to develop their projects for film or theatre.

The writing is bright, perky, observant, with an occasional shimmer of pure conjuror’s magic.
