TOM RICHARDSON – Creative Director
Tom is an experienced television Director and Producer with over 200 broadcast credits to his name. After reading History at University and gaining a Post-graduate Diploma in Business Management, Tom went back to his roots and started his career as a landscape gardener in his native Worcestershire.

There Tom combined practical roles such as project managing skyscraper garden designs and installations with office based responsibilities which included overseeing brand development and marketing operations.
Tom had his first taste of television at NBC's Rockefeller Plaza Studios where he wrote and produced a weekly live gardening segment on the ‘Today Show’. Assuming everyone in TV was provided with Green Room goody bags and a limo after every show, Tom returned to the UK to pursue a career in television.
Despite a lack of associated luxuries in the British industry, Tom quickly worked his way up the ladder, initially working in Birmingham and then London, and achieved his first Director credit at 28. Since then, Tom has directed and produced a number of successful returning series including Great British Railway Journeys, Escape to the Country & Terry & Mason’s Great Food Trip as well as developing his own original content such as ‘Railways of the Great War’, part of the BBC World War One centenary season, which he also Series Directed.
