I’m always interested in finding new outlets to share some of the great stories and sources that I encounter in my research. Over the years I’ve been a consultant for, presented and appeared in, a wide variety of television and radio productions, some of which are listed below. If you are a television/radio/production company and wish to contact me, please do so either through the press office at the University of Exeter, ( or directly, through my email
