David’s career in broadcasting began in Toronto, Canada and continued at the BBC, where David was a producer in the Current Affairs department of BBC Network Television, working on Nationwide, Panorama and The Money Programme. In 1980, David was invited to form his own company by Jeremy Isaacs, head of newly-formed Channel 4. Diverse Production, David’s company, produced many well-known programmes, including the long-running Diverse Reports and controversial Friday Alternative, and is still making excellent programmes today as part of the Zodiak group.
David formed Attentional (originally David Graham & Associates) in 1990 to press for the change in the then-growing independent production sector and has turned it into one of the most innovative media consultancies in the UK, with clients in the UK, US and continental Europe.
