Keeping The Dream Alive is a book written due to many requests from Tribe fans to know more about what went into the making of The Tribe television series.
Written by Raymond Thompson (Executive Producer, creator of The Tribe and Chief Executive of the Cloud 9 Screen Entertainment Group), the book gives a fascinating insight into the workings of the television and motion picture industry, as well as revealing the inspiration behind The Tribe and what went into the making of the series (covering production aspects, script writing, story and character development, casting).
‘Keeping the Dream Alive’ is a unique and intriguing memoir charting the life and times of how someone growing up on the wrong side of the tracks in a very poor working class environment in post-War Britain was able to journey to the glittering arena of Hollywood, providing an inspirational insight into how the one most likely to fail at school due to a special need battled and succeeded against all the odds to travel the world, founding and overseeing a prolific international independant television production company.
But it is also a humorous journal and insight into the fertile imagination of a writer’s mind and what life is like away from the red carpet and spotlight in the global world of motion pictures and television. ‘Keeping The Dream Alive’ reveals the unique story of how the cult series ‘The Tribe’ came into being. Along with a personal quest to exist and survive amidst the ups and downs and pressures of a long and successful career as a writer/producer, culminating in being appointed an Adjunct Professor and featuring in the New Years Honours List, recognised by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II for services to television.
An essential read for anyone interested in the television and motion picture industry – and for fans of The Tribe who want to know the inside behind the scenes story of The Tribe!
