Testimonial:

BBC Indian Ocean Series

Chris Scarffe filmed underwater for me on a shoot for a BBC series called Indian Ocean with Simon Reeve. Chris’s experience and professionalism shone through - we were able to get some very powerful and technically-sound footage without any issues. On top of that he was very personable and a pleasure to work with.

Press:

Radio Times - Documentary of the Week: “Epic…capturing big issues in chatty encounters. Reeve’s winning combination of a broad smile and enough journalistic edge to cut through tourist clichés makes for a great watch that also educates us”

 

Daily Telegraph: "compelling and sometimes uncomfortable television...digging deep beneath the white-sand beaches and swaying palm trees to come up with all sorts of gems and muck"

 

Mail on Sunday: "You won't lack for breathtaking beauty in Reeve's new series, but this is far more than just another bloodless travelogue... Reeve also fearlessly explores troubled war zones and crime-ridden urban areas along the way
