Who am I?

I’m a Radio Producer with 25 years of experience in producing programmes for the BBC. I specialise in crafted Features, Drama Documentaries and Music programmes and have a particular interest in ways in which music touches, changes and sometimes heals people’s lives.

Much of my work has centred on music:

  • Over the years I produced 28 editions of Soul Music for BBC Radio 4 such as Spiegel im Spiegel.
    (See Soul Music page for other editions of my Soul Music programmes)
  • I initiated and co-produced The History of Music - a 60 part series presented by James Naughtie.
  • I’ve co-produced 20 plus drama documentaries with Peter Leslie Wild about music and the arts.
  • My final in-house feature for Radio 4 was Hearing Ragas - Violinist Professor Paul Robertson's remarkable story of the Indian ragas he heard from within a coma, and the healing effect that Sir John Tavener's music had on him in his recovery.

    Listen now

I’ve won a Sony Gold Award, and been part of teams which have won the Jerusalem Award, the Prix Marulic, the Press Guild Award for Best Radio Programme of the Year 2013 and my work has been nominated for the Prix Italia.

With the closure of BBC production in Birmingham,  I’ve taken the opportunity to become a freelance producer staying based in the Midlands.
