Television work

In recent years I have been doing more and more work on television. This can be very exciting and interesting, but so far it hasn’t meant giving up the ‘day job’. I’ve been lucky enough to have been involved in some very important ‘prime-time’ arts programmes, particularly on the BBC, and have been privileged to meet and work with some exceptionally talented people.

If you represent a broadcasting company or independent production company then I will be happy to send you a DVD showreel of my work to date with a view to presenting or contributing to programmes. I also have several fully written up formats for arts programmes that I will be willing to divulge to broadcasting companies and some independent production companies if I am assured of confidentiality. My ideas for art programmes are many and various. These ideas are fresh, extremely stimulating and different from what has been done before – but surely everyone thinks their own ideas are brilliant, don’t they? Contact me, and if we like each other you will find out!

New This is a link to my latest ‘show-reel’ of TV work. It’s only short, but coming soon see ‘the director’s cut’ version with more material added, including a clip of my finest performance ever of Shakespeare!

Some reviewers have liked what I’ve done on TV…

“I rejoiced to see Leo Stevenson, an exact and scrupulous imitator of old masters and a giver of complicated technical information in classically simple terms” (Brian Sewell reviewing the BBC1 Leonardo series in the Evening Standard, 2003)

“[Leo Stevenson’s] experiment to recreate what the painting would have looked like originally is one of the series’ best revelations” (Gerard O’Donovan reviewing the BBC2 programme on Uccello’s The Battle of San Romano in The Daily Telegraph, 2006)

“Well worth watching” (David Butcher reviewing the BBC2 programme Raphael – A Mortal God in The Radio Times, 2005)

“The experiments by contemporary artists and conservators illuminate brilliantly the genius of his [Raphael's] artistic method. A real pleasure” (Gerard O’Donovan reviewing the BBC2 programme Raphael – A Mortal God in The Daily Telegraph, 2005)
