Jim Eldridge - Author


After leaving school, Jim Eldridge embarked on a wide variety of jobs before going to Teacher Training College. His time as a teacher at a Junior School in Luton was the inspiration and basis for his hit Radio 4 series King Street Junior. As his writing career took off, Jim moved from full-time teaching to supply teaching. This included working with physically and mentally handicapped children. In 1987, Jim became a full-time writer.

Most of his writing credits has been in the TV and radio field. And given than Jim's written over thirty books, that's a lot of TV and radio!

Jim's latest TV project is Monster TV, a 26 part sitcom for the BBC, which will debut in late 1999. He created and wrote the BBC TV series Uncle Jack and the award-winning Bad Boyes, also for the BBC. In addition to creating original material, Jim has been a writer on Tv series based on stories by other well-known children's writers, including Whizziwig by Malorie Blackman and Ghost Hunter by Ivan Jones. Other top-rated shows which Jim has worked on include Julia Jekyll and Harriet Hyde, Harry's Mad and Woof. He also adapted The Demon Headmaster and The Headmaster's Brain for BBC Radio.
