LIVE AT FIVE
On Wednesday 6th January 2016 'Live at Five' launched on STV Edinburgh and STV Glasgow, soon becoming Scotland's biggest daily magazine show, promising the best local chat, stories, music, cooking and features from across the country. As well as sourcing stories and interviewees for live broadcasts, George scripted, filmed, edited and presented pre-recorded video packages.
The channels merged to create STV2 in April 2017 and the programme won 'Best Daytime' at the RTS Scotland Awards in May 2018. The final episode, with the closure of STV2, aired on Friday 29th June 2018.
EDINBURGH FESTIVAL 2017
'Edinburgh Festival 2017' saw STV2 bring viewers the fun of the Festivals once again. George returned with 'Rickshaw Rides' which featured a host of characters and comedians...
EDINBURGH FESTIVAL 2016
Following the hugely successful 'Edinburgh Festival 2015', George and the team returned in 2016 to deliver the most comprehensive televised coverage of the Festival Fringe.
It was a particularly non-stop month for George who conducted 15 'Rickshaw Live' interviews; on-the-go chats with Edinburgh Festival performers from the back of a rickshaw! Interviewees included 'Donald Trump', 'Laurel & Hardy', Mark Watson, Lewis Macleod, 'Buddy the Elf', Tyler Collins... and even 'Margaret Thatcher'.
EDINBURGH FESTIVAL 2015
The biggest arts festival in the world was covered by STV Edinburgh and STV Glasgow in August 2015. George's highlights included interviewing Patrick Kielty and performing a live stand-up comedy set.
It is also recalled by some keen viewers that George 'became' a Ladyboy of Bangkok for a morning...
SEE WHAT YOU MISSED
"A round-up of the best of what Edinburgh and Glasgow has to offer."
If you missed an episode of 'The Fountainbridge Show', there was no better to place than 'See What You Missed' to catch-up on some of the highlights of the week. George presented the show which aired on Saturday and Sunday evenings in 2015.
The programme also included segments from STV Edinburgh's sister show 'The Riverside Show' on STV Glasgow, giving viewers from both sides of the M8 an insight into the people and places of the Central Belt.
THE FOUNTAINBRIDGE SHOW
"Good Evening Hayley, Good Evening Ewen & Good Evening Edinburgh."
On Wednesday 12th January 2015, a new TV channel launched, with one focus: Edinburgh.
'The Fountainbridge Show' was a nightly magazine format which shone a light on the people and happenings of Scotland's capital, with George's Roving Reporter role seeing him do just that - roving and reporting!
From the 'explosive' launch at Edinburgh Castle to bowling at Scotland's oldest pub; from joining in with an enormous variety of community group activities to previewing local events and from interviewing visiting celebrities to trying almost everything Edinburgh has to offer (all on live TV), George's 'never say never' attitude saw him undertake a blind date, a ski jump and extreme knitting - not on the same day...
George's other credits include Presenter, Producer, VJ and Social Media Reporter.
