Alistair presents BBC2's Escape to the Country, which is currently out filming across the breadth of the British countryside. This much-loved show regularly pulls in daily ratings of 2 million. He is also hard at work as a student, half way through the five year training it takes to become a clinically-accredited psychotherapist.

Alistair is also an expert in fields outside of television. He’s an experienced teacher of meditation and has been a practising Buddhist for many years. His detailed knowledge of Eastern philosophy and its practical application is proving an increasingly important part of his journalist portfolio. Broadcast interest in these areas is growing all the time.

After graduating from Cambridge, he began working in 1996 as a journalist for an international news network based in Berlin. Since moving back to the UK in 1999, he’s worked as on-screen talent for BBC1, 2 and 4, as well as Five and Sky.

Alistair is an engaging and professional host.
