2 August 2012 Currently I am working on five short documentaries about different Botanic Gardens around the UK working with different communities that usually don't have the chance to see the gardens, a project funded by Calouste Gulbenkian. It is a project initiated by BGCI called Communities in Nature which encourages a wider audience to connect with the gardens.


9 May 2012 Apologies to anyone who have been trying to watch Balancing A Dream.
Due to the unexpected news of Al Jazeera English bureau having to leave Beijing,
it created tension between China and AJE.
As a consequence the film had to be taken off the AJE website and youtube.
BUT you still have the chance to watch it tomorrow, Thursday 10 May at 16.30 GMT on TV
or on Al Jazeera's live stream.
