Joe Myerscough - Producer/Director

After working on the spectacular history specials Dambusters: Building the Bouncing Bomb and Escape from Colditz, science graduate Joe was bitten by the history bug and has since developed a passion for telling old stories in new and exciting ways. Most recently he produced and directed the first episode of D-Day: As It Happens in which Peter Snow and Arthur Williams track the progress of seven people who were there on D-Day in real time across 24 hours.

In 2012, after taking a sabbatical to work with the broadcast team on the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics, Joe returned to Windfall and became the youngest person to produce the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures. The series explored the influence of the alchemists on modern chemistry and the real elements that make up earth, water and air with plenty of explosions, flashes, bangs and even the cast of a West End musical thrown in for good measure.

Joe has also played a crucial role in many of Windfall's online projects including documentary/music hybrid Bars For Change and Foxes Live during which he managed the show's social media presence.
