Adverse trading conditions due to Covid pandemic caused multiple delays to all plans.
Heading positively forward from a challenging period of my own protracted health issues during recent years, fundamental decisions are taken to concentrate a continuing media career in broadcast scriptwriting, and authoring a range of books.
This concludes a two-and-a-half decades foray into broadcast production alongside journalism.
CBM has a revised project portfolio and new business model post-Covid, with the majority of project Intellectual Property Rights (IPR’s) now owned by our collaborative Dutch production partners.
I am guiding Concrete Butterflies Media positively forward on a different pathway, retaining book publishing rights relating to all projects past, and those illustrated on this website.
It has been an arduous and painful journey these past few years. However, there are so many more folk far worse off than my own misfortunes, so we count our blessings and use the stumbling blocks as stepping stones. Delighted now to feel revitalised and on the cusp of producing the best of creative work.
Never forgotten is the massive adrenaline rush and feeling of creative fulfilment gained from my first BBC and ITV broadcast documentaries. However, the time is right for change to a less stressful lifestyle. The only constant being change itself.
