Woodcut West will be led by Spark TV founder Paul Wooding, whose 30-year career has focused on natural history and specialist factual for broadcasters including the BBC, Channel 4, National Geographic and History.

In the lead-up to this launch, we have been brainstorming numerous ideas and have a number of projects in development that we will be announcing over the coming months. Our combination of editorial expertise and talent base will provide a broad and exciting range of great projects for the broadcasters we all love to work with worldwide.”
