Factual Programmes

As well as 6 years of hands-on science programme "The Big Bang" and a marathon 15 years presenting general factual show How2 (both on ITV1), Gareth has hosted numerous factual entertainment series. Being a trained engineer, most of Gareth's factual ouput covers science, engineering and technology, although there are exceptions (see bottom of page).
