Richard E GrantDo you have any interest in science fiction or fantasy?

I think it’s very cinematic and 2001 is - I still think is a kind of bench mark, all time science fiction classic film. I don’t think it’s been bettered.

Are you a Kubrick fan?

Yeah, a big Kubrick fan and I had read Arthur C Clarke’s book before I saw it but that’s the only science fiction book I’ve ever read, so I’m a hopeless interviewee in terms of science fiction and the future I’m afraid.

What do you think the future holds?

A lot of science fiction has said that the future’s going to be everybody with large heads, small feet and wearing space age suits. We’ve reached the time that all that was predicted 50 or 60 years ago - that’s not where we’re going to be going.
