Eight single men, aged from 30 to 60 and from rural Devon, travel to a remote village in the Scottish Highlands to meet eight single women who have struggled to find that special someone. Some are divorced, others bereaved and a few simply haven't found "the one" ... yet!

Helped by a larger-than-life matchmaker from each village, the romantically rusty men and women embark on a rollercoaster of dates and group events, in both Devon and Scotland. As they get to know each other better, the singletons also learn the odd thing about themselves.

There's disappointment and unrequited love for some, while for others it's a surprising journey that takes them well on the way to becoming part of a couple for the first time in years.

Documentary for Sky
“The Man Who Painted Everest”

The amazing tale of the man whose artistic quest takes him to new heights.

Artist Tony Foster is an acclaimed watercolourist who works in some of the world's most beautiful and inaccessible places. Not for him are the more convenient methods of working from photographs or sketches: he believes that great art can only be created by actually being present, and to this end, he made an arduous journey from Kathmandu to 17,000 feet up Mount Everest, to paint a landscape few have ever seen.

This revealing documentary follows Foster – in his sixties – as he battles altitude sickness, physical exhaustion, the threat of Maoist insurgents and exceptionally hazardous terrain to set up a huge canvas and paint the extraordinary scene before him.

Running time: 59 mins approx

TV Series for ITV
“Up on the Downs”

Four-part series Up on the Downs celebrated the range of people and pursuits which make Clifton Downs among the most popular and well-loved urban open spaces in Britain.

The Bristol Downs were filmed for over a year by documentary film maker Jill Ranford and her crew, capturing the Downs over all four seasons.

The stories include a group who watched and tracked peregrine falcons, the refurbishment of the Observatory, a Sunday lunch group, the yearly visit of the circus, the festivals, fireworks and football.

Jill said: "It was one of the most exciting and varied things I have done.

"One moment I was focusing on a moth walk late at night, then meeting up with a genuine Bollywood movie star and then chatting with a Polish trapeze artiste.

"The only time anyone actually lives on the Downs is when the circus comes to town and we spent much of its stay with the artistes and their families, in the caravans and under the big top, at rehearsals and performances."

A behind-the-scenes approach was used throughout the series.

Episode Running time: 60 mins approx
