About me

My background is in broadcast journalism as a former member of a BBC local radio management team and a Senior Broadcast Journalist.

I was part of the production team for the BBC series The Story of England (2009) and Great British Story (2011) presented by historian Michael Wood.

In 2014, I provided the research, text and images for nineteen heritage interpretation panels for Leicester City Council.   I received a commission for a further ten panels in November 2019. 

I have twenty-six books in print.  My books are mainly about local and British history, published by Amberley Publishing, Pen & Sword and the History Press. 

I work with parish and town councils, parish meetings, community organisations, community managed libraries and neighbourhood planning groups.

BBC Leicester Open Centre

In 2005, I launched the BBC Leicester Open Centre, giving listeners the opportunity to be part of creative programme-making, from charity fashion shows to Dr Who.
