Tom Heap

Freelance Broadcaster & Journalist

Tom Heap presents the investigations on Countryfile, Britain's most popular factual programme, scrutinising issues in food, farming and the environment. He is also the principal anchor of the Radio Four environment series Costing the earth and reports for Panorama on food, agriculture and energy. He started his career as a sound man for Sky News, before working on BBC news for many years in production and reporting roles.
Luckily his professional life allows him to indulge a personal passion for the outdoors, never more so than when leading a broadcasting team to Everest Base Camp 50 years after the first ascent.
