Profile image for Richard Driver

Richard Driver

Producer, Presenter

Chairman of company Greenstone TV, Richard Driver first broke into television as host of music show Radio with Pictures. After directing documentary Hokonui Todd, the ex singer ran production company Visionary TV and produced music series Give it a Whirl and award-winner Love, Speed and Loss. He went on to create and programme Sky TV's Documentary Channel for four years, before selling it to the BBC.

It’s very satisfying, I think, when you look back to have been part of a broadcast industry. You meet fascinating people — and everyone along the way you learn from. You learn good things and how not to do things. So I'm really happy to have had this accidental career in television. Richard Driver
