We’re Grammar Productions, an award-winning production house creating for global broadcasters like the BBC, History, Discovery and Canal+ International, as well as for major brands including Jaguar Land Rover, Visit Singapore and Opihr Gin.

We’re equally at home producing feature documentaries, online branded-content series, and major live events in iconic locations, whether that be the British Library, Singapore's Formula One or remotest Tibet.

"It's one thing to make films like this, it's another to pull it off."

- Michael Wood, veteran BBC broadcaster and author

We founded Grammar in 2016, and our team is united by a love of travel, history and telling a damn good story on film. We live for stories that change the way we understand the world, and that celebrate humanity at its brilliant, bedazzling best. Check out our Vimeo showcase here.

Our Team

Alex Bescoby (Co-Founder)

Alex is an award-winning documentary director, producer and presenter. You can see his presenter showreel here. His work has taken him to some of the less-travelled corners of the world – the back-country of Sierra Leone, the remote Peruvian Andes, insurgent-ridden southern-Philippines and far-flung corners of Burma (Myanmar).  He studied politics and history at the University of Cambridge, lives between Myanmar and the UK, and is now a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.

Max Jones (Co-Founder)

Max is an award-winning director and cameraman. He has worked on an array of programmes ranging from X Factor to Top Gear, for every major British TV channel. Max studied Film Design and Production at Kingston University, and is at home in the studio as he is out in the field. He grew up in Manchester alongside Alex Bescoby, and he’s earned a reputation for being seemingly indestructible while working in remote places – no matter what nature throws at him, he keeps on filming.

Niki Page (Senior Advisor)

Niki has more than 20 years experience in factual distribution and production. She started with Channel 4, where she worked on major co-production deals and acquisitions, before moving on to Fremantle and later Sky Vision. She now supports producers in the UK and worldwide bringing their factual projects to life. As Grammar’s Senior Advisor she’s a wealth of wise advice as the team dust themselves off from their latest adventure and work to bring brand new content to screens around the world.

Léopold Belanger (Director & Cinematographer)

Léopold (Léo) is a French director and photographer. Léopold’s works includes music video production, TV content as well as two original documentary series shot for Canal+ International. His latest project was to direct The LastOverland documentary series across 23 countries from Singapore to London. While on the journey, he also directed and produced branded video and photographic content for Jaguar Land Rover, Singapore Tourism Board, LonelyPlanet, Revolut and other major brands.   

Luke Radcliff (Assistant Producer)

Luke’s curiosity and experience in some of the farther-flung corners of the world make him right at home as Grammar’s shooting researcher. A doc lover through and through he started out in distribution, learning what separates the good from the great and helping award-winning factual films find the perfect audience. Now working in production to bring important and often forgotten stories to life, he’s made video for BBC’s Panorama, Sky News, and recently secured an international reporting grant from One World Media.  

Nat George (Assistant Producer)

Nat is a London born economics graduate from Newcastle University, and had been looking for any ordinary graduate job when he was swept away on Grammar’s ‘The Last Overland’ project for 4 months, filling in for his unwell Grandpa, Tim. Since returning to home soil, Nat has joined the team as Assistant Producer, spending his time working across all of Grammar’s existing projects in the UK and abroad, as well as working on the development slate. He’s very happy not to be driving for a bit.

Marcus Allender (Expedition Manager)

Marcus is a travel and marketing expert with 20 years’ experience across Europe, China and Southeast Asia, and has been interviewed on the BBC, CNN and elsewhere. Setting up the online travel business Go-Myanmar.com in 2012, Marcus oversaw its establishment as the most popular and trusted travel website for the country. Marcus is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and is happiest on the road. He now spends his time planning and managing Grammar’s filmmaking expeditions – the more challenging the better!
