Natural History and Science Broadcaster

Radio has always been my first interest. I have worked as a radio presenter on programmes as varied as The Litmus Test science quiz for BBC Radio 4, to being a 'stand-in' presenter for Jimmie Macgregor for Macgregor's Gathering on BBC Radio Scotland, as well as being a regular on Radio 4's The Natural History Programme. Some more recent radio commissions are illustrated below.

I have also written and presented films with a natural history or countryside theme for BBC Schools Television, including studio, and done 'commentary dubs' for other programmes. I am happy to consider other work of this kind, especially for programmes with an environmental or scientific theme; please contact me to discuss.
