Sorry this month's mixtape offering is so ridiculously late- the real lives of the Sinema writers have been pretty hectic lately. We're about mid-way through exam season, but we'll return to you shortly, we promise.
Anyway, when we started working on this playlist, we were in the midst of the Christmas/ New Year season. And we thought: what springs to mind when we think of this most wonderful time of the year? Family? Fun? Food?
Well, umm, no. The emergency services. It's the busiest time of year for those firefighters, policemen and paramedics who aim to keep us safe. So here's to them- the people behind 999 (or 911, if you're American).
