THE LEGACY

Alan left a very generous legacy for the promotion of curiosity in programme making.

He wanted to stimulate and empower talent that might otherwise never find its place in the is highly competitive industry. His foundation launches at a time when television funding for documentaries is at an all-time low and yet interest in the form is growing a pace in cinemas across the country.
