"As Controller of BBC ONE I have worked with John over a number of years and through some very challenging events.

John's professionalism, strong editorial judgement and decisive crisis management have been a great support in helping to navigate and inform the audience and maintain the highest standards of the BBC ONE schedule. He's been great to work with."

Former Controller BBC ONE


"The MA Broadcast Journalism students at Sheffield University found John's lecture on the challenges of breaking News events in Network Television both engaging and thought provoking - their feedback has been extremely positive.

The clips and scenarios sparked off some complex questions and stimulating debate."
