PLAYING CATCH-UP

A wise friend once told me, “hey, Vick, it’s way better when you blog really infrequently, but when you do, just collate everything that’s happened over that long period of time into one piece so I don’t have constant reminders of new stuff you’re doing, just occasional, less annoying overviews”. Other friends – granted, those probably considerably more savvy in the …

WE MADE IT!

RED BULL CAN YOU MAKE IT 2016 / RED BULL TV / TELEGRAPH HILL 500 students from around the world set off on the adventure of a lifetime around Europe, and as they made their way towards the finish line in the heart of Paris, it was an absolute joy to document all of their journeys from our insane studio hub …

THREE SIX FIVE

Happy New Year,* ya filthy animals. I’m back from gallivanting around Cuba and back to gallivanting around assorted television studios.

ON YER BIKE

Thanks to the brilliant production team and crew from Cyclevox, last weekend I made my first foray into the world of cycling (who knew?!), presenting coverage of The 2015 Jupiter London Nocturne for Channel 4, Eurosport and Sky Sports, alongside Jonathan Edwards and Rob Hayles. Well, technically, Jonathan and Rob talked cycling, I talked all the other stuff. The Nocturne is …

THAT’S NOT ME

A huge congratulations to the team behind That’s Not Me, a short film I presented recently exploring the effects of airbrushing, which has been awarded the BBC Award for Factual Entertainment at Visions Festival 2015.
