“Paul has a fantastic reputation, impeccable credentials and a superb breadth of experience”, said Daniel McDonnell, Timeline’s MD.

“Paul will help us deliver even better services to our clients, from 2016 and beyond.”

Timeline North has worked on Andy Murray: The Man Behind the Racquet for BBC One, 50 Golden Years of Sport for BBC2 and All at Sea for CBBC.
