TV

tvThe television side of my career started behind the scenes when I was part of ITV Studio’s Runner Pool. Based in Manchester and Leeds I was a runner / logger for shows, such as:

–   Love me, Love My Home  (pilot)    –  Countdown   –  Super Tiny Animals    –   May the Best House Win   –  Guess the Star (pilot)  and Gino d’Acampo’s There’s No Taste Like Home

I also did studio, gallery and post-production running.

Since training to be a broadcast journalist I have also had lots of on-air experience in live two-ways, reporting on packages and studio presentation.

Here’s my TV presenting and reporting showreel:

For more depth into the pieces I have shot and edited. Here are some examples of my reports, starting with the most recent:

Pure One Voice – Radio without barriers.

A radio programme about disability is broadcasting on a community radio station in Stockport. Rather than just listen, people with learning disabilities are involved in creating the content on and off air. I visited Pure 107.8 FM to find out more…

Down on Reddish Vale Farm.

Urban farms, like Reddish Vale in Stockport, offer city children a chance to experience countryside life first hand…

Bookcycle beats library closures in Wigan. 

A year ago the shelves of Beech Hill library were empty when Wigan Council closed the building due to cuts. Now the Bookcycle has transformed the space into a community hub.

Dying to keep warn… the risks of winter weather.

The winter weather has left elderly and vulnerable adults dying to keep warm. A new campaign has launched across the North West to raise awareness of the dangers.

Boccia – the forgotten sport of the Paralympics?

After the excitement of London 2012 I visited Stockport Boccia Club to see how the games has affected them.

Battered Mince Pies!

Mr Eaters Eating Emporium in Preston will batter anything – even mince pies! I went down to the chippy in Ribbleton, Preston to find out what they taste like…

Is the price right at Manchester’s Christmas Markets?

I investigated whether the prices at Manchester’s Christmas Markets were too expensive.

Skip left in Blue Badge space.

A skip had been left in an accessible parking space at the University of Central Lancashire. This forces disabled drivers to park further away from their lecture building.
