Cameraman based in Edinburgh, employed by ITN, working for ITV's Good Morning Britain covering stories all over the UK and the world. War Zones, World Cups, Royal Tours and many other less exciting assignments, like interviewing current and ex Prime Ministers have kept me busy over the years working in Breakfast Television since GMTV came on the scene back in '93 and regional TV before that. In 2009 I began to record what it is like to work, the often strange and long hours needed to bring the hard news, human interest and fluffy fun to the UK's TV screens in the morning, mostly broadcasting live.

Now The Sun Appears!

Wednesday 28th January (am)

I am getting used to the rain. It has become the sound accompaniment to waking up. No rush to get up as we will be leaving for the airport at 11am. 

Yiljan and I went for breakfast to see Derrick, Mr Motivator, sitting with a cup of coffee. He had come down from his Technicolor mansion in the hills to say a final good bye. 

Last night the plan was to go for a quick dip either in the pool or sea to get a few rays in the hour or so before we departed. Best laid plans and all that, the rain had stopped but it was still very cloudy, although starting to break up slowly. 

We had three days of heavy grey skies and dodging torrential rain showers. Now, in a taxi to the airport listening to reggae and Ladysmith Blackmambazo there was a clear blue sky and hot bright sun overhead. Out of the whole trip the longest continuous period we had out in the sun was the walk from the Customs Office along to the airport terminal.
