‘To master the one minute time-span requires considerable discipline and few pieces if any had been shaped as genuine miniatures, most having the appearance of being extracts from larger works. The notable exception was John Smith’s ‘Gargantuan’ which was not only the right length for the idea but actually incorporated a triple pun on the word ‘minute’.’ Nicky Hamlyn ‘One Minute TV 1992’, Vertigo magazine.

‘A wonderfully witty example of how to conduct pillow talk with a small amphibian.’ – Elaine Paterson, Time Out.
