Paul has written, directed and produced over 60 TV documentaries. He started with BBC Tomorrow's World, moving briefly onto the Holiday Show and Animal Hospital, before returning to the BBC Science department to make a number of films for the Horizon brand, including bringing D:Ream keyboard player Prof Brian Cox to the small screen.
