After graduating, Paul began a career in television. Starting at the BBC, he has made films on a diverse range of subjects, which include Bollywood, life in Japan, dance culture, plane building, the personal computer and internet revolution, the social history of Britain and the English Civil War.
His ninety-minute film, Oak Tree, Nature’s Greatest Survivor won the prestigious Royal Television Society Award for best Science and Natural History programme and the Grierson Award for best Science documentary in 2016.
Back in 2008, Paul set up a production company, Furnace TV, where he concentrated on making films about science and technology. Paul believes passionately that science doesn’t just make the world a better place to live in but it also helps us to appreciate its beauty and sense its wonder.
While making these films, Paul became convinced that there was a powerful and important story of a scientific revolution and it was largely untold. The tale begins in the early 19th century and its repercussions are at the heart of physics today. This story will be the subject of his forthcoming book, Einstein’s Fridge - How the Difference between Hot and Cold Explains the Universe.
