Im now bombing around the country on Springwatch.
the first two weeks are beavers in Scotland.
Today is the first day of live and nerves abound!
we've had a great week and got some incredible stuff.
Were based in the western highlands on a stunning estate.
Lovely team, delicious smoked goose and fine tweeds.
all good really.

nitin sawhney

On may 6th Nitin Sawhney had a concert at the Royal Albert hall with his old school friend James Taylor.
nitin asked me to produce a film of the event.
So with the help of graham, charlie and robin on cameras and kathy editing and helping direct we ventured forth.
An amazing night. I was on stage and be there with such brilliant musicians in front of 6000 people was unforgettable.
were now cutting the film and will hopefully have something to show soon.



Got to interview Bjorn from ABBA at a cornish hotel!!!
what a man , what a legend.

first love

Im having great fun shooting a music series in london about people who had a passion for music early in life, then lost it and want to go back to it.
the first was Sue Perkins playing the piano, then Emilia fox learning the Cello with Julian Lloyd Webber - this was great as I got to meet her dad Edward Fox. Such an honour.


A few weeks back I got to head back out to Kenya to make a film for the David Scheldrick Wildlife trust.
It was magic to catch up with old friends both human and elephant.
I spent a couple of weeks travelling between Nairobi, Tsavo and lamu.
The trust has a new plane for anti poaching so i felt very spoilt bombing around in my own light aircraft.
The trust does an amazing job and it was great to be out with the anti poaching team. We also filmed doctor Poghorn operating on a bull elephant with an arrow wound on the slopes of mount kilimanjaro.

I also caught up with lovely Wendy up in ithumba
