Chris Terrill

After starting a career as a professional anthropologist and geographer, Chris later joined the BBC where he discovered a passion for making documentaries. He made memorable series such as The Cruise and Beloved Country.

His films are shown worldwide and have received many awards – including an Emmy for outstanding investigative journalism (Ape Trade), a Royal Television Society award for innovation (Soho Stories), A Broadcast Award for best producer (HMS Brilliant) and a Multicultural Media Award for best documentary (Tito’s Story).

Chris works alone, without a conventional crew, giving his films the very intimate and personal flavour that has become his trademark.
