Rob is a TV producer, reporter and camera operator with 30 years’ experience at the BBC, Channel 4 and ITN, in news, factual and documentary production. He is a four times award winner, whose awards include a coveted Royal Television Society award for his work on Channel 4 News. His association with The Maritime Foundation goes back to 1995, when he won the first Desmond Wettern Maritime Media Award for a series of reports that led to a major documentary on the loss of the bulk carrier Derbyshire.
Andy trained as a photographer, producing high-end photo-shoots for a range of clients. He has been working on video camera and multi-layered computer-based edits for 15 years, bringing that expertise into TV programming, notably long-form documentary programming. His particular strength is in the complex combining of audio and video to lift productions right out of the ordinary. Closely involved in the outstanding ‘Solent Sky’ museum, he is a regular expert media contributor on aviation, and on the rich history of Southampton with its maritime aviation heritage.
Martin has immense experience as a broadcaster and presenter of radio, television and films. He became one of the best-known faces on TV in the south of England when he hosted BBC South’s nightly South Today programme. For many years he was one of BBC Radio 4’s newsreaders. He has also presented a wide range of current affairs and music programmes. His particular interests are in the countryside, sailing and maritime matters.
Sue was a leading news correspondent and studio presenter at ITN for 15 years. A varied and highly successful career saw her reporting for ITV News, GMTV, BBC News, BBC Breakfast News, BBC South, BBC West and BBC North West, as well as on BBC Radio. Assignments ranged from Antarctica to Rwanda, from floods on the Mississippi to the handover of Hong Kong. Many of her reports – especially at BBC South – were seaborne, so she is no stranger to maritime matters. She has also worked in media training for the Royal Navy.
