Helping actor Ricky Tomlinson on Who Do You Think You Are? BBC1
Historical research and presenting for the media
My historical specialism is the social history of urban Britain in the Victorian and Edwardian periods. Thanks to rigorous preparation at the University of Oxford, I have a systematic approach to research and am highly creative in finding little-known sources.
I've been a popular on-screen presenter with the team at Who Do You Think You Are? as I'm able to explain complex issues simply and succinctly. If you are researching a book, article, TV series or radio programme, please contact me for an initial chat about your requirements.
You can find out more about my credentials on the About page or on my academic site.
