My research and thinking have been moving in slightly different directions recently and the following film is the first in a new series of audiovisual reflections on spectacle. I used to watch British wrestling on World of Sport when I was a child and ever since I have been gripped by a enduring fascination with this world of gods and grotesques, heels, faces and tweeners. Of all the wrestlers I saw as a child it was Mick McManus who most beguiled me.
