Power Food

Power Food - TV Show - Filmed August 2000

Hannah and I were featured on a TV show where we were followed around London as we had breakfast and lunch meetings with clients, played tennis (as you do) in the afternoon and went out in the evening with friends for a slap up meal. It was a fascinating experience into the making "reality" TV and an early pilot of "Made in Wandsworth". :)
