Senior Lecturer in Film and Television Production, University of York

I hold a first degree from Cambridge and a PhD MA from Birkbeck both in English. I am a professional film- and programme-maker with over 30 years network experience with BBC, ITV and C4. I have held 12 Series Editorships and before entering academia was Commissioning Editor for News and Current Affairs at Channel 4.

I teach documentary production and theory, narrative theory, multi-camera studio and filmmaking. I also focus on film and TV as contemporary industrial, cultural and political practices.

Currently I am Programme Leader of York's BA in Business of the Creative Industries, a degree I designed and launched.
