Purdue, O. (Consultant)

Activity: Consultancy typesWork on advisory panel to industry or government or non-government organisation


I was Historical Consultant for the 6-part series, 'The Big House Reborn', which followed the history and restoration of Mount Stewart, Northern Ireland's important National Trust property and stately home. The series aired on UTV in the summer of 2015 on the primetime early evening slot. Viewing figures were outstanding, even managing to beat EastEnders.
