"As a post-production editor you have to be both technical and creative"

“You also need to be able to apply this knowledge in a creative and efficient manner. I’ve had plenty of practice at this, having spent most of my career with BBC TV working on programmes like Top of the Pops, Blue Peter, Allo Allo, Horizon, Children’s Hospital, Eastenders and Only Fools and Horses. I was also fortunate enough to work on Monty Python for a millennium special.”
