I have written and produced about 70 current affairs, investigative and history documentaries for television.
These have included investigations of miscarriages of justice, history programmes covering aspects of World War I and II, stories of crime and espionage, and profiles of celebrities and film stars.
I have also produced a number of history programmes for BBC radio.
The hour-long documentary ‘The Bullseye Killer’ won a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Cymru Award for Best Current Affairs Programme. ‘Beti and David’ won a Gold at the New York Festivals Best Film & TV Awards.
‘Living with Dementia’ won the Guild of Health Writers Award for Best UK TV Programme.
Most recently I co-produced ‘Beti and David: Lost for Words’ for BBC One Wales; a BBC TV documentary presented by Connie Fisher; I wrote and produced ‘Aberfan: A Survivor’s Journey’ for BBC Radio Wales; and am currently making a history documentary for S4C.
My latest books include Defying Hitler: The Germans Who Resisted Nazi Rule and Shadow Warriors, the story of female British and US spies during WW2 (both with my late friend Gordon Thomas), and Aberfan, Gaynor Madgwick’s biography and telling of the Aberfan disaster.
