They have both worked for the BBC, ITV, Channel Four and numerous independent companies, and their credits can be found on a wide range of work from current affairs classics such as “Panorama” and “Dispatches” to “Perspectives” and other high-end documentaries.

Just last year they were filming in Washington and on abeach in Thailand (pictured), but now they are enjoying working nearer home.

Liz said: “Our new company aims to bring television standards to the corporate sector. We’ll make short films for websites, training videos, recruitment drives or longer creative films, and we’ll still carry on working as freelances for the big television companies.”
