commercials and multi-media programmes. Based near Nottingham, in the
centre of the England, and also in West Devon, his clients are dispersed
over the UK and in Europe. Although the credits list illustrates
a diverse range of programme types, his particular strength and interest
lies in in-depth coverage of engineering, technical and scientific

is the series of documentaries produced for Unilever (1998 - date) on aspects of
sustainable agriculture, a subject of particular interest.

freelance colleagues with whom he can work to form a production
team appropriate for the project. His links with facilities
and service suppliers in the TV production business make
him the ideal contact point for any UK filming. He has
filmed in more than 20 countries around the world including
North and South America, Africa, the Far East, Australia and across
