April – June 2017

Series Director

Scotland Debates LIVE HD

STV (ITV Scotland)

Director of the high-profile event live from Glasgow's Tramway Theatre, in the run-up to the 2017 General Election.

I created the programme format with the Series Producer and collaborated on the script.   I brought a populist approach to the event, using entertainment TV production values to engage a mainstream audience.

As well as recceing the venue, I specified the technical requirements for 8 camera OB and commissioned the set design.
