Jim White
Jim White attended Manchester Grammar School and read English at the University of Bristol, though maintains most of his education came on the terraces at Old Trafford.

A founding member of staff at the Independent in 1986, he moved across to the Guardian ten years later, where his contributions have won the sports columnist of the year. A regular on Saturday Review and Front Row, he can also be frequently heard on Radio 5, where he was awarded a Sony Gold award for a documentary about the demise of Wembley Stadium.

Cinema has been a lifelong passion since his dad took him to see Lawrence of Arabia when he was a child and he returned twice a day every day for the next week to see the film over and again. After a youth largely spent oscillating between the football pitch and the local flea pit (his first date was at, bizarrely, 101 Dalmatians: it was all that was on) these days his favourite movies depend on his mood. The Godfather Part Two if in need of an epic, High Society for an uplift of the soul, This Is Spinal Tap when jokes are required. Though his children have shown him that there is not a lot wrong with Toy Story.
