Prior to joining 7 Wonder, Alan spent most of his career at the BBC, producing and directing on several of its most respected factual brands, such as Panorama, Crimewatch, Rogue Traders, Bang Goes The Theory, The One Show and, erm, Dog Borstal.
He then made the leap into ‘live’ programming, creating and show-running several stripped specialist factual event series, such as Volcano Live with Kate Humble and the RTS nominated Stargazing Live with Brian Cox and Dara O Briain. For the final years of his time at the Beeb, Alan was Editor of the flagship consumer journalism series Watchdog, where his investigations and campaigns led to numerous prosecutions, changes in the law and secured thousands of pounds in refunds for wronged customers. His first series for 7 Wonder was the highly successful What To Buy And Why with Cherry Healey.
Career highlights include re-enacting the Mini chase from The Italian Job on the streets of Turin, filming the Northern Lights in the Arctic Circle and helping to discover a brand new planet.
