Behind you

One I missed earlier: The BBC has recruited David Brindley from C4 to lead 'popular factual and factual entertainment' commissioning. David made his name directing the Emmy-award winning documentary series Educating Yorkshire, before moving to the dark side of commissioning in 2013.

Born in Bulkington, he got his first taste of showbusiness as a cub scout in the gang show at Bedworth Civic Hall. This was followed by appearances with Nuneaton Amateur Operatics and Dramatics Society and PR Panto Productions ('The Midlands No 1'), and after leaving Blue Coat School in Coventry, he studied drama at Hull University.
