1967 - 1970 worked in VTR for the BBC at Television Centre, London, including training.

1970 - 1991 joined ATV from the BBC in July 1970, as a sound trainee in the then new studio centre in Birmingham. After a period of initial training in the studios, I joined the outside broadcast department in 1973, remaining there until 1981, when I transferred to the film unit as a sound recordist, it was also at this time Central TV took over the Midlands franchise from ATV. I worked for the film unit until 1991, when like many of my colleagues, I was made redundant, and became freelance in March 1991 (thank you Mrs. Thatcher!!).

1991 -  > continuing to work as a freelance sound recordist on video, film and outside broadcasts.

In addition to sound, I also offer a comprehensive kit of mini-cam & DV  equipment which can be used to advantage on many types of production, including the usual 'in car' applications as seen on programmes such as the BBC's Top Gear, and Carlton Tv's Pulling Power. Having worked on many 'investigative' programmes over the years, I am also able to offer covert facilities, both sound & camera.

What ever your production needs may be, I can quickly assemble experienced crews from 2 man, sound & camera, upto full drama, across all craft areas, drawing on the wealth of contacts I have made over the years, in all cases recommendations would be made on proven track records.   


>> Please note I do not undertake work on a low / no or deferred payment basis <<



As a full member of the above organisation, it provides employers with the knowledge that I have been responsible for producing sound to broadcast standards for many years, a visit to the web site is highly recommended.

The trade union of the film and television industry, a worthwhile source of useful reference information.
