Tim Samuels is one of the most acclaimed documentary-makers in town.

His films - broadcast across BBC One and Two - bring serious journalistic issues to entertaining life by deploying his trademark heart and chutzpah. The Danish Television Festival dubbed Tim a 'benevolent anarchist'.

Tim's shows have won three Royal Television Society awards, best documentary at the World Television Festival, been screened at the UN, and delivered major audiences.  See Tim's BBC showreel.

His more recent work - as a global correspondent for the National Geographic TV channel in the US - can be seen here.
