Alexis Wixted, Acorn TV, Midsomer Murders Special & Agatha Raisin Facebook Lives & Multi-panel Sleuth Special.

Acorn TV continue to be impressed with the high quality of Helen’s behind-the-scenes content for several of our key franchises which is entertaining and informative.

Dan Hamby, Doc Martin, Acorn TV

We were really impressed with the Bodyguard EPK is really well done and compelling. The questions are interesting and the edit is spot on. It makes you want to watch the show if you haven¹t yet. Brilliant work, Helen!

Gloria Bertazzoni, Bodyguard, BBC Creative & World Productions

Working with Helen and her team is a pure joy. She researches the subject thoroughly and the cast feel relaxed and in safe hands. Once in the editing process she will work tirelessly to hit deadlines.

Chris Worwood, IJPR, A Discovery of Witches

I think Helen did a great job given a rather testy shoot. The finished shows were well thought out and entertaining, indeed a cut above the usual EPK material.

Tim Haines, The Loch, ITV Studios

Helen James did a great job for us with the EPK for Fearless - working with a large cast and a fast moving production she produced a very entertaining and informative set of films which really position the show very well.

Adrian Sturges, Fearless, ITV Studios

Helen has done a stunning job on our 'Behind the Scenes' short features for the last series of Inspector George Gently. She's a sensitive interviewer, a great visual stylist - and I Iook forward to working with her again.

Claire Ingham, Inspector George Gently, Company Pictures

Helen approached the DVD extras for both series of Lip Service and The Hour in a delightfully fresh and engaging way. Her charisma and warmth immediately put the cast and crew at their ease and she brilliantly judged each interview, asked incisive and pertinent questions, working around the filming schedule with great consideration. She edited the behind-the- scenes material superbly, giving it a lovely narrative flow. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Derek Wax, Lip Service & The Hour, Kudos Film & TV

With incredible efficiency and quick insight Helen manages to gather great behind the scenes contributions from cast and crew, which on a tight production schedule is no easy feat. Her sense of the right tone to convey in all her edits is also exemplary. She’s a delight and we look forward to working together again soon.

Arabella McGuigan, Executive Producer

Helen is a first class producer who quickly grasps the brief adding her own creativity and quality to it too, working tirelessly every time to produce outstanding content, on time and within budget.

I would recommend Helen very, very highly. She is just brilliant at her job.

Helen's instinctive journalistic style makes all contributors feel at ease and with a tough brief and few resources she was able to turn in a series documentaries which have been used around the world.
