I'm nearing the end of two major networked docu-dramas for ITV One.

Marion has done a fine job, elegantly directed' and D-Day: Last Letters Home an elegaic film marking the 70th anniversary of D-Day. Both will air primetime on ITV One.
I was part of the team that created America: The Story of Us, which went out in 2010 on US History, and was nominated for four Emmies. I am also Emmy nominated in my own right for Direction.
