My 2009 Documentary The Autistic Me, is on BBC Iplayer after being transmitted again on BBC1. Sadly, Alex, one of the main characters in the film, passed away earlier this year, in his sleep, from an epileptic seizure. I hope the film and his contribution continue to inspire and educate.

My latest documentary is on Channel 4 on Wednesday 10th September at 10pm. It’s called All Creatures Great and Stuffed, an authored film where i go in search of the people and businesses behind the global renaissance in Taxidermy – the ancient craft of skinning and shaping dead animals. T

The documentary has already been getting lots of column inches in the media, and is ‘pick of the week’ or ‘critics choice’ in The Telegraph, Times, Observer, Daily Mail, Guardian, Mirror, The Sun, Daily Star, Radio Times, Heat magazine and Closer Magazine…. I hope you watch it, on the night or on demand.

My first feature length documentary film House of Surrogates, has had wonderful reviews.

“Straight up: House of Surrogates (BBC Four) was one of the best

documentaries this year. In it, BAFTA-nominated Matt Rudge took an unflinching,
delicate and probing look at the world of surrogacy in India” ***** Telegraph


““A remarkable and challenging documentary”
**** Daily Mail

and if you are based in the UK, you can watch it on BBC Iplayer, for the next two weeks here.
