HARRY OULTON

Harry’s television career started at the BBC, as a script-reader in the Single Drama department under George Faber and Charlie Pattinson. He then moved to the Series department where he worked on CASUALTY, first as researcher, then as Script Editor and finally as Associate Producer on a themed evening of programmes called CASUALTY 250.

After leaving the BBC, Harry worked for Company Pictures on the National Theatre of Brent’s MASSIVE LANDMARKS OF THE 20th CENTURY and for Tiger Aspect on PLAYING THE FIELD, before moving to Granada North where he worked on existing programmes and developed his own series. Harry script edited AT HOME WITH THE BRAITHWAITES, BLUE MURDER and COLD BLOOD, and co-created and script edited DISTANT SHORES.

On leaving Granada, Harry produced THE BAD MOTHER’S HANDBOOK, a one-off 90 minute drama for Ruby Films/ITV1 starring Catherine Tate in her first dramatic role. Based on the best-selling novel by Kate Long, it featured a pre-Twilight Robert Pattinson as the love interest.

Harry was Executive Producer on THE GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY, a 2 x 90 minute drama for World Productions/BBC1 starring Luke Evans and Jim Broadbent.

Harry’s first children’s novel, A PIG CALLED HEATHER, will be published in February 2014 by Piccadilly Press. Book 2 (THE RETURN OF A PIG CALLED HEATHER) came out in August of the same year.
