The Use of London Slang in Writing and Screenplay with Bob Sterry was created in collaboration with The Literary Arts Committee of The Clackamas County Arts Alliance. In this video, Bob explores common English slang terms used in popular British TV shows and other media. He starts by giving us a well-known example, the 26-year-running TV show The Bill. Ironically, “the bill” is a slang term for ‘the police’ in Britain, which is also the theme of the show.
