Terry and Anne with a model of the Batmobile

He was the man entrusted by film director Tim Burton to design an "organic and sinister" car for the new Batman to drive in the 1989 Michael Keaton film. He's Terry Ackland-Snow who has been an Art Director at Pinewood and in the international movie industry since he started as a print boy and junior draughtsman in 1960.

His coolest movies include The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Superman 2, Bond, Aliens, Batman and The Deep. Now he's started a film school teaching young people about the art department's work within the movie industry. "After having had such a fantastic and exciting career myself, I feel I want to put something back into the business" he says.

Terry joined me as part of my Berkshire film season, which continues over the next couple of weeks between 10 and 1 on BBC Radio Berkshire. And on the 14th September I will be live on set at Pinewood Film Studios.
