When I was growing up, I desperately wanted to present Tomorrow’s World, the BBC’s long-running, legendary science programme. And on the very day I joined the BBC – they axed Tomorrow’s World. Fortunately, I found its replacement, Click Online, and it took me almost no time to persuade its boss to let me join the team.
For more than 20 years, Click has taken me around the world, and opened my eyes to the different ways people live, work and create. I’ve been so lucky to be part of such an amazing, innovative programme that doesn’t just talk about technology, but uses it to push the boundary of what’s possible in story-telling.
That’s how I came to host three world-first TV programmes – the world’s first 360 show in virtual reality, the world’s first TV show filmed and edited solely on a mix of phones and tablets, and the world’s first multi-choice factual programme that lets the viewer choose their path through the stories. Here are some my highlights.
