Work examples

Live Producer - Volvo Ocean Race 2017-18
Proucing over 200 Daily Shows, daily news updates plus live arrivals - some 4,500 minutes of airtime...


Programme Director - Volvo Ocean Race Series, 2015
Took over from the Series Producer for the final eight shows of the weekly broadcast half hour series "Life at the Extreme". Cool story towards the business end of the race. A joy to work with two outstanding editors, Jordi Esgleas and Chris Polding.

 

Features Director - America's Cup Host Broadcast, San Francisco 2013
Handled a few roles on this job over three months: made technical features to help explain a new class of foiling cats powered by wingsails, interviewed the principles for character stories, and analysed the racing in the TV gallery for the Half Time Show during the live broadcast. It was an astonishing story. Worked hard. Proud to be part of the 100-strong crew.

 

Director/Cameraman - BBC Geoff Holt Atlantic, 2009-10
Another outstanding story, with amazing principle characters. I had to live this one with Geoff and his carer Susana, sailing across the Atlantic with them filming for BBC World News. It was a positive story over the Christmas of 2009 and New Year of 2010. BBC Worldwide came to us at sea live via satellite six times to a global audience. I also fed back several video news packages, hooked Geoff into 22 BBC Radio ISDN interviews, and then made a 30-minute documentary for the BBC.

 

Cameraman - Fastnet Record onboard Banque Populaire, 2011
My ninth Fastnet and a phenomenal experienced aboard the biggest and fastest trimaran in the world. Filmed onboard for IMG's Spirit of Yachting, distributed through BBC Worldwide, and packaged French interviews for Eurosport. This race record, and course record, still stands.

 

Cameraman - Straight News Shooting

Voice-Over, Writer, Cameraman etc - Antigua Sailing Week 2011-17
Love sailing and filming on a different boat each day and coming up with these stories with a sweet team in Antigua. Pure heaven!

 

Director - Barcelona World Race 6 xs 30 mins documentaries, 2010
The story goal here was to explain the second edition of this tough, two-handed non-stop round the world race, still relatively unknown, and to hook into the strong characters. This clip is a condensed version of episode 1, courtesy of Sunset & Vine/APP and the organisers, FNOB. The series was translated into several languages and broadcast widely.


Camera/Producer - BBC Children's Newsround - 2014
A news story to inspire young female sailors. Nice job Frances and Dee!
