Stephen Leigh has worked for me as Series Producer of Hugh's Three Good Things and River Cottage Three Go Mad At Christmas. He has at all times been utterly conscientious, thorough and reliable. He recruited staff on my behalf and led the teams with rigour and intelligence. He is particularly good at driving edits, writing commentary and understanding how to tell stories. He is unfazed working under pressure and has a level of calm rarely seen. I would be delighted to work with him again.

Nick Shearman, Head of Keo West
