Research for Michael Wood's BBC Television series
It was a privilege to work with Michael Wood and his Mayavision International team on their groundbreaking BBC television series
of England in 2009/10, which included local research and co-organising the 'Kibworth Dig' when we dug over fifty test pits and recorded the finds.
Later, I provided production support for Mayavision International's Great British Story : A People's History, broadcast on BBC2 and BBC4 in 2011/12.
Study the past if you would define the future
Leicester City Heritage Panels
I undertook the research and wrote the text for twenty heritage panels installed at
locations in Leicester in 2014-15. A wonderful breadth of material from Cardinal Wolsey to Sid James!
Commissioned by Leicester City Council and created by The Art Department, Nottingham.
