About

Wildcat Films began with reporting from the Troubles in Northern Ireland, and then with dissident groups undercover in the USSR. It went on to pioneer the role of independents in supplying frontline news to networks around the world.

Ground breaking reports from the conflicts in Nicaragua, South Sudan, Western Sahara and Kashmir led to the establishment of the Channel 4 Independents Fund which is still in place today.

Work in progress...

"Melting Ice - Cold War" is a documentary investigating how climate change is increasing the risk of war in the Arctic.

Production became stalled because of Covid travel restrictions but is now back underway.

The sizzle below was edited before the invasion of Ukraine which has of course further increased military instability in the Arctic.

It is narrated by David Shukman, the former BBC Science and Defence Editor.
