Recent reviews include:

Darcey Bussell: Looking for Margot (December 2016 BBC One)

'A lovely portrait of the dancer every ballerina - Darcey included, she says - wants to be'. The Guardian
'Bussell's strongest suit was quizzing splendid old queens and dames from the ballet world, and poring over old documents. Most illuminating was the accounts book the destitute Fonteyn kept in retirement. One heartbreaking entry read: "Repair wheelchair $1."' The Telegraph
'Incandescent.' The Arts Desk
'Bussell's engaging film' The Times
'That's a story the Royal Ballet prefers to keep quiet. The grandees were happy to see her pack houses with her dying swan, slightly less delighted to see her storming the beaches like Che Guevara in a tutu. What a woman.' The Daily Mail

Blood and Gold: The Making of Spain (Series, December 2015 BBC Four)

'Simon Sebag Montefiore has a deep personal interest in the period, not least as a member of a prominent Sephardic Jewish family that extends back centuries. One of the highlights was his discovery of the fate of several ancestors who were highly placed governors in Mexico, but even so could not escape the Inquisition.' The Arts Desk


'Churchill: 100 Days that Saved Britain' (50th anniversary of Churchill's death January 2015 ITV)

'Last night's astute TV documentary by Marion Milne saw his first three months in office as the period he was not only able to declare victory over Hitler but victory over his enemies within...it is against his faults that Churchill's greatness stands in heroic relief' The Times Lead Television Review

Darcey Bussell's Looking for Audrey for BBC One (December 2014 BBC One)


'This has to be the most stylish documentary going out over Christmas 2014' Radio Times

'If I Don't Come Home - Letters from D-Day' (70th anniversary of D-Day in June 2014 ITV)

"An intimate view of one of the 20th century's key moments...sobering, moving and beautifully read." Sunday Telegraph
"As you might expect, a three-sofa job. That's like a three-hanky job, but you sob directly into the sofa to save time." The Guardian
"Intensely emotional slice of social history....utterly arresting." Mail on Sunday
"All it took to bring any audience to tears were the words on the page." Daily Mail
"A dignified re-telling....It was a simple idea that brought an original, emotionally engaging hook to a TV subject area currently in danger of becoming swamped." The Telegraph
