Production History

After training at Newport Film School 1987-89, he joined BBC Pebble Mill in Birmingham. He soon became an editor, working on programmes such as 'Chalkface' and 'Specials', before getting his first directing break in 1995 on the Clothes Show. He has directed (amongst many others) 'Tracks', 'The Terrace', 'Gardening Neighbours' and 'Casualty Saved My Life'. Most recent work includes the 50th anniversary special of The Sky At Night and was last directing for Countryfile.

He had also been producer of various features on BBC Worldwide's sell through video range, and after producing a special edition of the Doctor Who story 'The Five Doctors' he was asked to produce the soon to be best-selling video release 'Bottom Fluff' (a collection of outtakes from the comedy Bottom). When the DVD releases began, he maintained his involvement, producing various documentaries:


*"I Claudius: A Television Epic", covering the production of the hit BBC costume drama I, Claudius and included on its BBC DVD release.
*"'Magnox - The Secrets Of Edge Of Darkness", covering the production of the epic 1986 BBC drama Edge of Darkness and included on its BBC DVD release.
