He specialises in  observational documentary and his  subjects have included HRH Prince Charles, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, NASA Space Shuttle Astronauts, Air Sea Rescue crews and more.

Paul will be presenting two talks: Saturday 9 September and Friday 6 October.

From his beginnings as a Press Photographer in Yorkshire in the sixties, Paul moved on to become a news cameraman for BBC Television News from where he joined the BBC Current Affairs Unit and moved into documentary film making. Paul has subsequently created, shot, produced and directed over 180 prime time major network television documentary films.

During his filming exploits, Paul has survived a major helicopter crash, leapt to safety from a sinking ship during a North Sea gale, escaped a volcano erupting around him in Nicaragua and was the first cameraman on the scene of the 1988 Piper Alpha Oil Rig incident. On September 11, Paul was filming with FDNY's Deputy Chief Fire Commissioner at the World Trade Center when both the twin towers collapsed on top of him knocking him unconcious. It was 25 minutes before he was able to crawl out of the debris, his camera was smashed but his tape showing the iconic sequences of the south tower collapsing survived.

This highly entertaining talk is not to be missed.
