September 2016...

I was delighted to have been commissioned to assist with research into Cheryl's family history for the "Who Do You Think You Are?" TV series.  This work was commissioned by the Wall To Wall production company and aired on UK television in winter 2016.

Other TV work has involved undertaking research at Northumberland Archives at Woodhorn for the producers of "Who Do You Think You Are?".  The results of my research will feature in a forthcoming 'Wall to Wall' television series on patients in lunatic asylums in the 1800s (screening dates to be announced).
