- I first worked with Graham Norton in 1998 on the original pilot of So Graham Norton for Channel 4. Since then he I've directed well over 600 editions of Graham’s talk-shows in various formats on Channel 4, Comedy Central and both BBC One and Two. He continues to direct The Graham Norton Show on BBC One.
- When Graham moved to the BBC in 2005 he presented a new topical weekly show called The Bigger Picture, which ran for three series on Monday nights on BBC One. In each show Graham and his 4 celebrity guests would take a closer more satirical look at story’s from the weeks newspapers. To ensure the show was up-to-date it was record about an hour before transmission.
- In the spring of 2007 The Graham Norton Show was launched on Thursday nights on BBC Two. The comedy talk-show features a topical monologue from Graham, chat with three celebrity guests, plus great music performances as well as members of the audience telling anecdotes on the infamous red chair. The show ran for four series before transferring to BBC One in the summer of 2009. The series has gone from strength to strength and recently received another BAFTA award for Best Comedy & Comedy Entertainment Programme (2015).
