Whatever your requirements from a History Consultant, I am only a phone call away and able to provide advice and support to a wide variety of projects.
Television, Radio and Stage
Whether you are producing a drama, documentary or educational programme, you may need a professional historian to be involved to ensure accuracy of costumes, scenery, props, language and content. I can provide a full, bespoke service whether you need an initial view on the accuracy of a proposal, detailed advice on costumes, props and scenery or to have a script read through.
I have appeared on screen to talk about artifacts and give humorous insights into historical periods and people. I have appeared on BBC's Bargain Hunt, Living TV's Derek Acorah's Ghost Townsand L!ve TV's Buildings with a Story.
Moviegoers are becoming ever more demanding of historical accuracy. As with TV and stage work, I can help ensure accuracy of costumes, scenery, props, language and content. I can provide a full, bespoke service whether you need an initial view on the accuracy of a proposal, detailed advice on costumes, props and scenery or to have a script read through.
Most notably I advised on the chariot race scene of Timur Bekmambetov's epic Ben Hur.
Museums are under increasing financial pressures. I can offer a cost-effective service to give advice on temporary displays, artifacts and projects. Most recently I staged an exhibition in the European Parliament concerning war memorial design across Europe.
