Gaming to the Oscars
This chapter focuses on the creativity in the UK, which manifests itself from the street music of Tottenham to the glamour of the Oscars and the James Bond movies. It focuses on the glittering successes of UK creativity as symbols of a much broader creative and inventive culture that make a muscular contribution to the UK's GDP, defy the usual rules of trading relations, and offer great hope for a rebooted UK. It also recounts how creativity in the shape of live performances and museum exhibitions was crushed by Covid-19, lockdown, and social distancing. The chapter highlights resilience as the glory of UK creativity, citing actor Bertie Carvel who took the initiative and organised a lockdown theatrical festival broadcast on Radio 3 in the summer of 2020. It looks at gaming, with its embrace of artifical intelligence, as a potent symbol of largely unseen achievements, such as the Google-owned machine 'AlphaGo.'
