KEY PERSONNEL

SIMON COWELL M.B.E. - Chief Executive Alongside Wild Productions, Simon runs one of the country’s biggest wildlife rescue centres, ‘Wildlife Aid’ in Leatherhead, Surrey. The centre deals with over 20,000 wildlife emergencies a year. Realising the on-screen value of documenting some of the day to day dramas and challenges faced by his team of over 300 volunteers, Simon created Wild Productions in the late 90’s. The subsequent eleven series of’ Wildlife SOS’ have allowed Simon to exploit his passion for animals and develop a truly idiosyncratic style of presentation. Both on and off camera, Simon is an intuitive producer. He now exploits every opportunity to get key messages about wildlife and the fragility of the environment to as wide an audience as possible. Wild Productions has enabled him to embrace and launch other programme projects and to take up issues on a global scale. A one time former City sugar broker, Simon was awarded the MBE for services to wildlife in 2005.
PADDY HAYCOCKS - Executive Producer Former senior executive, factual programming at TalkbackThames, Paddy began working with Wild Productions six years ago. He was particularly impressed by their commitment and focused approach and was only too happy to offer some of the experience he’s built up in over thirty years of working within the television industry. As a specialist in factual programming, he has extensive knowledge of news, features, consumer and documentary output. Having worked on both live and pre-recorded programmes, he also has a detailed practical and editorial grasp of studio, location and post produced material. Paddy has worked for every major UK broadcaster, both on and off camera. He’s also written countless articles and overseen several thousand hours of broadcast programming designed to investigate or illuminate key factual issues. At heart he remains a wordsmith, always seeking to find the perfect synthesis between the narrative and the imagery.
