A Secret History
50' for Channel 4, 2001
What started out as a film about the science of the Armada ended up as a full-blown history, with an original and compelling take on the story of the iconic English victory. Far from being the underdogs, the English had the experience, the weapons and the social structure to defeat what looked like a much more powerful enemy.
One of the sweetest experiences I have had in television, thanks to some superb colleagues: Simon Berthon [EP], Charlie Hawes [AP], Beth Milward [PM], Chris Openshaw [DoP] and Nick Follows [editor] plus a stunning score by Andy Price.
