Last updated at 14:28, Tuesday, 14 January 2014
A Barrow born man will become the editor of Horizon this month.
Steve Crabtree, who has worked on BBC science and business programmes since beginning his television career on Tomorrow’s World, will join the science strand as it prepares to celebrate its 50th anniversary.
BBC head of science Andrew Cohen said: “Steve Crabtree has an outstanding track record in delivering great shows on BBC1, BBC2, BBC3 and BBC4 and is widely recognised in the industry for his passion, creativity and journalistic rigour.”
He added: “I’d also like to thank Aidan who has lead Horizon with great passion over the last few years, delivering dozens of outstanding films that have been both popular and rich in the content that Horizon is rightly renowned for around the world.”
Mr Crabtree’s credits include BBC2 engineering series How to Build… and BBC4’s Pain, Pus & Poison The Search for Modern Medicine. Before working in TV, Mr Crabtree worked in the shipyard in Barrow as a painter.
He said: “Horizon has been handed to me in great shape and I’m looking forward to working with the team to bring a whole new collection of amazing and surprising stories to our audience.”
