SORREL DOWNER

Journalist, film producer, and media consultant, mixing it up for TV, online, newspapers and magazines. I cover travel & tourism, lifestyle, and design. Mainly. This is the HQ for previous work, and an introduction to current projects. I work all over the world and live on a farm in Cadiz which I write about at www.somewheresville.org.

Documentaries

In partnership with Andrew Graham-Brown of AGB Films, I worked on the development and production of Wild Places of Essex with Robert Macfarlane (BBC Natural World) and Hyena Men, and was lucky enough to work in China, writing, producing, and ultimately co-directing,  Panda Makers, a BBC Natural World Special. It took the award for Best Narration, Best Script, Best Conservation & Environmental Issue and the Special Jury Award at the International Wildlife Film Festival, Missoula in 2011, and  fittingly, it went on to win a Golden Panda at the Pan-Asian Golden Panda Awards. Made by AGB Films, filmed over 3 years in China with a great team of cameramen, then brilliantly edited by Nigel Buck, and narrated by David Attenborough.  First shown BBC2 Dec 2010; Animal Planet May 2011.

There was good press coverage, some of which is below:
