OAPs Behaving Badly, Channel 5
A really fun Channel 5 obs doc I worked on in 2014.
I shaped the 6-part series by casting all sorts of weird and wonderful over 65s.
I saw sights I will never forget while on location in Tenerife for two months. Never underestimate British pensioners to drink you under the table!
I took on the project after finding older people are brilliant to work with — they are more candid than any other contributors I’ve worked with. Probably because they are happy with themselves and the life they have chosen.
They were also very patient with the “hurry up and wait” approach we like to take in TV.
