Current and recent work
On February the 13th 2017 I can be seen in the BBC TV series ‘The Art of France’ with Andrew Graham-Dixon. Here is me on the beach at Etretat, France, during filming
- In July 2013 the BBC filmed me in my home for a sequence that will appear in the forthcoming TV series called ‘Treasures of Ancient Egypt’. For this I re-created a part of a much damaged tomb painting from Meidum (c.2600 BC), researching and re-inventing the missing sections, and making the whole painting look as it would have done when new. This was painted using authentic materials and tools. The photo shows me with the presenter, Alastair Sooke
- In August 2013 I'll be seen on the BBC1 ‘One Show’ as one of four judges in their art competition
- In 2012 I presented a programme on Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa for the National Geographic series ‘Ancient X-Files’. In this programme I talked about Leonardo and his work and interviewed various experts on some mysteries and alleged secrets hidden in the painting. I had the pleasurable experience of travelling around Italy to many of the places associated with Da Vinci, which was hectic but very nice. Here are a few photos from this programme.

Discussions have started with a major independent television production company about a TV series of my own about art – but with a special twist, though I can’t describe what it’s about for obvious reasons. So far a ‘taster tape’ of me presenting the proposed programme has been made and the reaction has been very good. A major UK broadcaster has been very enthusiastic about the idea - and me, however, I’ve been down this road many times before, and because it is so very hard to get anything past all the final hurdles in the world of television I’m not ‘counting any chickens’ yet.
