Paul Heiney is a well respected, versatile & experienced broadcaster & writer, who over 30 years has appeared on all of Britain’s major television & radio networks. In recent years, his speciality has been consumer affairs & rural issues.
He can currently be seen presenting ITV1’s successful prime-time series Countrywise, travelling to all parts of rural Britain to meet people & hear their tales. For seven years he was a presenter/reporter on the BBC1 top-rated consumer show, Watchdog & is well remembered for That’s Life in the early 80s which led to a long string of successful shows including In at the Deep End, This Sunday, Food & Drink, Lion Country, Crossing Rome as well as many series on rural affairs for ITV Anglia.
On radio Paul has presented many programmes including for BBC Radio 4 – You & Yours, Today, Home Truths & On Your Farm.
Paul has also had a rich life outside of broadcasting. With over a dozen books to his credit, both fiction & non-fiction, he is a widely read author. He has written on rural, maritime & farming matters & more recently on popular science.
He has also found time to be a pioneer organic farmer when, in 1990, he decided to master the skills of traditional farming using cart horses, Suffolk Punches instead of tractors & farmed 40 acres of Suffolk countryside. This experience inspired not only his hugely successful column Farmer’s Diary, which appeared weekly in The Times for seven years but also a number of books.
In 2005 he fulfilled a long-standing ambition to sail the Atlantic single-handedly in the wake of the solo sailing pioneers which led to his book The Last Man Across the Atlantic.
Paul regularly hosts events, gives informative keynote speeches & presents corporate productions.
