The success of Michael in the Garden in the BBC’s film competition for 1988 resulted in a feature on my film making broadcast on BBC television

It was an amazing experience to be on the other side of the camera and to work with a professional unit on the programme. The programme was broadcast on prime time television worldwide over Christmas 1988.

Michael in the Garden
was a deeply felt project on a subject very close to my heart and it was tremendously rewarding to reach such a wide audience with a very personal film.

This excerpt from the programme, Showreel 88, is introduced by Tony Robinson (Baldrich from the BBC’s Blackadder).

Please note the first film excerpt shown is not my film.
