I hate to start this blog like so many absentee bloggers but… sorry about the lack of updates! I got myself a new job working on Al Jazeera English’s environmental show called ‘earthrise’ about six months ago now. It’s been manic but seriously good fun so far. It’s a different world to writing but it’s lovely being part of a bigger team and slowly seeing a story idea develop into a 3-page pitch, a full-on budget and then seeing the film shot, cut, edited and finally polished into the final product.
Check out the show here: http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/earthrise/
Yes, I am biased but I think it’s god-damn-awesome!
As part of my job, I also work on a medical show called ‘The Cure’ (points for the hat-tip to a great band ) which has been surprisingly good fun. I know more about tropical diseases than my little sister who is a final year medic. Whoop!

Keep an eye out for updates from shows!
