About Mark Roberts

Field recordist | | China

Some call it the Dark Arts; that corner of broadcasting few understand, but without which TV wouldn’t be half as entertaining. Mark trained in the UK in 1988 and then moved to Hong Kong in 1993, quickly becoming one of the most sought-after and versatile engineers in the region. Since then he’s done it all – documentaries, ENG, OBs, LE, drama, corporate and commercial. He’s happiest when filming science and natural history, and has gained a reputation of being able to fix almost anything in the field, with just a soldering iron and a handful of cable-ties.
