The Creative Social Blog has released a series of interviews with David Puttnam, the film producer and politician, speaking with him about his return to advertising and his views on mass media in general.

As Chief Executive Officer of Columbia Pictures in the late eighties, Puttnam was criticized for what some saw as a condescending attitude toward the Hollywood film industry.

This past summer, he chaired the Joint Committee on the Climate Change bill.
