At present he has a radio documentary and a radio comedy - both dealing with climate change - under consideration by radio production companies. 

For television he has written episodes for ITV’s The Bill, an adaptation of his own award-winning stage play No Further Cause for Concern for BBC2 and other scripts for the Open University and BBC. At present he is developing a tv comedy series on climate change.

Apart from No Further Cause for Concern (Cardiff and Edinburgh) his stage plays include Cartagena! (Northampton Royal Theatre), Fetlock to Forecourt (S.
