Brighton Swimming Club in Robinsons ad and Michael Portillo Documentary

I’ve been on the other side of the lens a little recently. Robinsons was recently down the club shooting their new TV ad. Along with other members of Brighton Swimming club I appeared in an ad for Robinsons crushed Apple and Cinnamon Fruit Cordial, I even got to do a little bit of the voice over!

Brighton swimming club will be featured in ‘Portillo’s Hidden History of Britain’ in an episode that explores Brighton’s history told though the West Pier. In it Michael comes for a swim with our club and then interviews David Sawyers, which if you know who Dave is is going to be special. It’s on at 9pm Friday 7th of December on Channel 5. Originally Michael Portillo interviewed Roger Bamber, Finn Hopson and me about our work documenting the west pier through photography, unfortunately that segment was cut so you have to try and spot me in the background of the swimming bit.
