Waddell Media is producing an hour-long documentary following Countdown‘s Nick Hewer on a charity mission.
Hewer is driving 4,000 miles to deliver a saw to a young, struggling carpenter in Sierra Leone. He is determined to help this young man who he first met two years ago. Nick Hewer’s Road Trip (w/t) was commissioned by Ralph Lee and Lina Prestwood, the director is Nick Read and executive producers are Jannine Waddell and Robert Thirkell.
"This fascinating documentary follows Nick on an epic and wholly-unexpected charitable act – viewers can expect to see him in a new and surprising way," says Prestwood.
Waddell has also been recommissioned to produce 4thought.tv, Channel 4’s religious, moral and ethical series, for a third year.
Airing daily after the main Channel 4 News at 7 o’clock, 4thought.tv features a mix of people of from all walks of life, talking directly to camera about dramatic incidents in their lives. The series has gained a reputation for taking on controversial subjects.
4thought.tv was commissioned by Ralph Lee and Lina Prestwood. Series editor for Waddell Media is Eamon O’Connor.
"4thought.tv is a hugely-valued series which continues to demonstrate, daily, that faith is still a vital part of people’s lives in modern Britain," says Prestwood.
