History Man

BBC Studios boss Peter Salmon has lighted upon BBC TV production's current creative director Damon Pattison, 47, to join the new division's board as Head of Development. Damon has a degree in Ancient and Medieval History from King's College London.

I can't find a cv showing what he did from 1991 to 1998, when he joined the BBC. Early credits included the National Lottery Draw with Dale Winton. He left to join indie Celador in 2000, where he worked with poo-poker Gillian Keith on You Are What You Eat, and producing Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, including the shows featuring the first millionaire, Judith Keppel, and Charles Ingram, who won with the aid of well-timed coughs.

In 2007, he set up Lucky Day, which became part of Zodiak Media in 2011. He was behind E4's Love Shaft - speed-dating in a lift - which lasted six episodes. He moved to Keo Films in 2014, before rejoining Auntie as maternity cover for Ana De Moraes.  He's been involved in the development of Ultimate Gladiator, "history entertainment", coming to BBC2 later this year.
