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 Story 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.

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!
