Holmwood House

January 21, 2014

This is the broadcast result of an investigation I carried out into a Bristol care home, Holmwood House. In all, I was working on this for over two months. It was broadcast on BBC Points West on 15th Jan 2014

I also wrote an article for the BBC News web site on the same story.

Spanish Migration

March 18, 2013

I researched and produced this piece about the rise in the number of Spanish people coming to live and work in Bristol. It was broadcast on BBC Points West on 18 March 2014, and the story was subsequently picked up by a variety of other media. I’d be very interested to hear from other people moving to Bristol or the West Country for work. Feel free to get in touch email address is on my About Page

Christmas Care

December 8, 2012

I went to Swindon to film this story for Points West at Christmas 2012. The charity had been going for ages and said they saw many more people than were officially registered as homeless in Swindon. On reflection, I think the story would have been more powerful if we had also spoken to people who were on the streets to see if they thought the same. This was the first piece I filmed entirely myself. My piece begins at 1’58” into the bulletin.

University of Local Knowledge

November 29, 2012

A belated blog post, but this was the first report I did for Points West, in November 2012. I looked at a project run by Knowle West Media Centre called the University of Local Knowledge. The idea was to get people from south Bristol to make short films about their lives and experiences, and to make those available on the web. I had no idea how popular keeping horses was in the middle of inner-city Bristol until I met the people who did it!
