Producer. BBC World TV.

World War One was a truly global war, and we wanted to show that. So we set out to find the most incredible stories we could. 

I also wrote about the whole series here.

During the war every single one of the world’s forces found themselves in Baku, fighting over a new kind of resource. Tracing the story, we found ourselves at the origin of a battle that still rages to this day. 

Tanzania - Warship

What’s a 100-year-old German warship doing in Lake Tanganyika? We got on board, with a hexacopter, to find out.
