Over 900 weekly magazine shows so far. I love golf and I love sport in general! It’s analogous to life itself and sport generates great stories. You often hear sports commentators say “You couldn’t write this!”, but they’re wrong. You could write it. But no-one would believe it.

A puppet chat show, the host puppet being a computer generated motion capture, but the sets and the guest puppets were real. Much fun matching the host to the set in every single shot. Also finished the sound mix purely in the on-line edit.

These days I be mostly editing on AVID.  I don’t do FCP or Adobe Premiere.
All the above credits are there because they’re shows I felt I made some kind of difference to, but in my time I’ve done worker bee work on a load of other famous stuff like Top of The Pops, Blackadder, The Young Ones, Doctor Who, Match of the Day, Sportsnight, Grandstand,  and, one of my faves,  The Hot Shoe Show with Wayne Sleep and Bonnie Langford, which I was the assistant editor for, and which won a  BAFTA award for editing. I’ve also done quite a bit of pop promo work, in the 90’s when they were all the rage, but there’s really no accreditation process for pop promos.
