Personal profile

I am studying for my PhD part time at Royal Holloway, along side being the Degree Leader in Television, and Deputy Course Director at Birmingham City University, School of Media. I decided to pursue a career in higher education after working in television production at the BBC for twenty years.  I have a wide range of television production experience at series producer level, including constructed and observational documentaries, lifestyle and makeover shows, magazine shows, and live studio and outside broadcasts.  I have also worked as a project manager for the BBC series Coast, managing the series outreach and building partnerships.

My research interests are around the history of television production in the regions, particularly at BBC Pebble Mill in Birmingham, in the last third of the twentieth century. I am building an online community archive around the programmes, production practices and culture of Pebble Mil.
