EUTV Sports Producer

During my final year at Edinburgh University, I undertook a role with the University television channel as their Sports Producer. Here is a selection of videos we released during my tenure.

This video isn’t perfect but I learnt a lot from producing it and it was popular on Facebook at the time of release. Last minute pull-outs from crew members meant I directed, filmed, interviewed and edited with no assistance. That was really useful in helping me get to grips with editing software and every stage of the production process.

A prediction I’m proud of (and one I’m not)

No one was backing Tony Bellew before his first fight with David Haye but I was confident that the bookmakers had got it wrong. I wrote this piece on Bellew’s chances and am proud, in retrospect, that I went against the tide of Haye support to write the piece.

The fantastic thing about writing for TNS was the wide variety of opportunities to write on different subjects.

I’ve written for TNS on everything from Buddhist robots to golf, via a live review of rap pioneers, The Sugarhill Gang. It’s made me a better writer and, importantly, a more flexible writer. Here is a selection of pieces on varying subjects that I have written for TNS…
