With a background in Social Anthropology I specialise in films with a social, cultural and environmental themes.

I've worked all over the world from Afghanistan to Mongolia and from Syria to Suriname. I specialise in South American stories.

REVIEWS FOR PREVIOUS BROADCAST DOCUMENTARIES

 

SYRIAN SCHOOL – BBC

 

"Syrian School is great, incidentally, shot through with little flashes of illumination about how political attitudes are formed and hardened, but also reminding you that, beneath the real differences between British and Syrian society, there lies a great, submerged iceberg of human sameness".

 - Tom Sutcliffe, Independent.

·      

"Excellent contemporary history"

- Phil Harrison: Time Out.

 

"This excellent documentary series on schools around the world gives a real insight into the way people live, away from the distorting-lens of agenda-driven news." 

-Will Hodgkinson: Guardian, Pick of the Day

 

 

GUARDING THE QUEEN - ITV

 

“Hardly anyone put a foot wrong in this superb documentary series.”

-Gerrard O'Donnovan, Telegraph.

·

 - Victor Lewis Smith, Evening Standard
