The DRF is a UK organisation that is standing up for the voluntary dog rescue sector. The group, which includes local politicians and MPs from around the UK and celebrities such as Martin Clunes and Joanna Lumley, aims to actively tackle the complex issues of illegal dog breeding on a national scale. It does so by engaging in local council and other partnerships and by conducting its own independent national surveys.
The mission of this organisation is to protect animals in Spain from cruelty; to educate people against neglect; and to change, improve and implement animal protection laws. Knowledge on animal law is lacking in Spain in all areas of society, and the organisation, which works with one of the country's three lawyers that specialises in animal welfare, is also setting up an education programme for those in authority such as the police, vets, or civil servants working at the town hall. ACTIN has co-organised the country's first animal welfare conference.

As an instructor I helped introduce students in adult education to the world of TV journalism. They learned how to produce TV news packages; from writing scripts, to delivering news to the camera with autocue, and 'pieces to camera'. No matter how nervous some of them were, by the end of the course they were delivering news to the camera, and the work was very rewarding.

Regular clients such as Reuters Financial (7 years); CNBC (8 years); Carlton 02; the Travel Channel (10 years); and a variety of corporate production companies such as Ernst & Young and Oxford-based First Sight Media and Jop Pannekoek in The Netherlands.
