Julian O'Brien

Producer, Director

Julian O'Brien, who shepherds the team of reporter/directors on Country Calendar, knows something about the job. He spent nine years in the field, before returning as the show's producer. O'Brien began as a newspaper journalist, and his broadcast career also includes stints directing current affairs, documentaries and corporate videos.

Certainly there are gorgeous backdrops and beautiful scenery, which we try to make the most of in the show, but in the end they are people stories: stories about people who are hands-on on the land. Julian O'Brien on Country Calendar, in The Press, 16 March 2010
