Journalism, Radio and television
I have worked as a freelance journalist ever since I started off on a student newspaper, many years ago. My work has appeared in The Guardian, The New York Times, The Independent, the BBC, History Today, The Literary Review and Nautilus Magazine.
I’ve spoken about British history on Radio 4 Today’s Programme, BBC1’s Countryfile, Sky News, ITV News and ABC’s Late Night Live. I worked as an historical consultant for the BBC when The Weather Experiment was adapted for a three-part series called Storm Troupers: the fight to forecast the weather.
