When not working directly on a production, Helena looks after Wingspan’s development slate, alongside Deborah Lee.
She has worked with Archie on and off since 1997; it seems he has forgiven her for running him over on an Arctic snowmobile when making Joanna Lumley in the Land of the Northern Lights...
As development producer, Helena has been involved at the start of numerous Wingspan productions over the years. As producer / director, her credits for Wingspan include all three parts of Getting Our Way, two episodes of Tunes for Tyrants, the award-winning Ian Hislop's When Bankers Were Good and programmes in the Do-Gooders and How To Be Bohemian series. As executive producer she helps to support other projects alongside Archie - from Workers or Shirkers: Ian Hislop's Victorian Benefits to an ambitious and imaginative new arts film currently in production... watch this space!
When she’s not at Wingspan, she has another life as a primary school teacher.
