The Great Escape

Following last month's Great Escape interviews, we continue to speak to graduates and professionals who have made the decision to base themselves on the other side of the English Channel. More and more young Jersey folk working in various sectors are spreading their wings and deciding to peddle their wares in mainland UK, and for varying reasons. Last month Alex Pearce told us how he left Jersey to pursue a career as a DJ, and chef India Hamilton spoke of the sheer diversity and vibrancy of London's cuisine culture being a big pull factor. In Part 2, we speak to BAFTA-nominated filmmaker Mike Pearce about why he fled the rock and what might inspire him to come back.
