Richard Farmbrough - Managing Director
Richard Farmbrough founded Reef Television in March 2003. After graduating from Durham University and completing a post-graduate course at the Courtauld Institute, Richard started his career in BBC Entertainment. He then moved to the in-house Arts department, working on The Story of Painting, Bookworm and Home Front. At Talkback Productions, he directed the Bafta-nominated first series of Channel Five's 'House Doctor', as well as co-creating and producing the hit show 'Your Money or Your Life'. Richard produced 'The Art Club' for CNN and was Executive Producer at Spire Films where he made 'Return of the Architect' for BBC Four.
At Reef, Richard is responsible for developing company strategy and heading up senior management. He has been Executive Producer on most Reef projects and currently oversees the company's programme development.
A personal highlight for Richard was interviewing Sir Gary Sobers and Sir Richard Hadlee in one day for a Channel 4 cricket documentary. Richard divides his time between Somerset and London, is married with two young sons and spends his spare time in art galleries and playing sport with his children.
