For those teachers looking to inspire their students beyond writing, directing and performance, Digital Theatre Plus, the world's best HD online arts education resource, has a wide collection of in-depth interviews from theatrical professionals working behind the scenes.

This week, we bring you our exclusive in-depth interview with Peter Mumford, the Lighting Designer on Richard Eyre's award-winning revival of Ibsen's Ghosts

Peter sheds light on how a Lighting Designer works in collaboration with the rest of a theatre company, describes how technological advances have changed the industry, and discusses his thoughts on establishing a career in a field that wasn't formally recognised until the 1950s.
