SAS: Who Dares Wins: Series 1

Channel 4, 2005

One of three directors on the first series of what has become one of Channel 4’s flagship series - SAS: Who Dares Wins. A group of ex-Special Forces personnel take 30 ordinary men through an SAS selection course, with every test taken from the real Special Forces selection.

I was the gallery director for the shoot, directing the special forces operators on base filming. I edit-produced programme three in the series. *Seven years later I would return to conduct all of the celebrity master interviews for season one of ‘Special Forces World's Toughest Test’, an American version of the programme for Fox, again produced by Minnow Films.

‘Superior entertainment.’

The Daily Telegraph

'A thoroughly-addictive series.’

The Daily Mail

‘The best show on television.’

The Sun

‘The watermark for challenging reality shows has reached a new high.’

The Guardian
