I worked at ITV Westcountry (then HTV) for 13 years from 1995 working my way up from researcher to series producer. I made hundreds of television programmes from single subject documentaries, to political programmes through to factual entertainment and commissions for other broadcasters. I was involved in programmes which won multiple awards.
Those programmes included West Eye View, The West This Week, Out of Order, Teachers’ TV, Dispatches, Channel 4 News, The Bargain Hunters, Beat The Dealer and many other one-off single subject documentaries or arts programmes.
In 2008, I was made redundant when ITV pulled out of regional tv programming. I became freelance and set up my own media consultancy. Today I’m a freelance journalist, tv producer and director and also run my consultancy with a group of trusted professionals, many of whom also work in the media.
