Since 1982 Keith has worked mainly as a scriptwriter, book author and documentary maker for television. His first screenplay, an adaptation of the Martin Amis novel Other People: A Mystery Story, was funded by the National Film Development Fund and led to a commission for a three-part version for BBC TV Series and Serials. Keith was a winner of the National Screenwriting Competition in 1987 for his original screenplay ‘The Blue Pearl’. Subsequent scripts have been commissioned by Paulforth Ltd. (Family Business), Millimages S.A. (Pablo – the Movie) and Red Fox Productions (Black Dog, Death of a Soapstar, A2Z).
In 2000 he won a Children’s BAFTA award for his work co-creating, co-producing and co-writing the BBC children’s animation series 'Pablo – the little red fox' based on the ‘Red Fox’ books by Hannah Giffard. The series, co-produced by Red Fox Productions (of which Keith is the Managing Director) and Millimages S.A. in 1999, has now been broadcast in over 50 countries and continues to play on C-Beebies.
Keith has had six non-fiction book titles published including: Unexplained Natural Phenomena (Orion, 1997) and The Search for Free Energy (Simon and Schuster UK, 2001). Since 2008 Keith has worked as an RLF Fellow, both at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge and the University of East Anglia in Norwich.
Keith’s feature film adaptation of his novel ‘A2Z’ is in development with Punk Cinema/Lightpath Productions. Keith is currently working on a number of other screenplay and fiction projects. With Daniel Saunders, Keith creates the comic strips, short films and graphic novels known as Lard Wants World Peace!
