Austen Irwin

Producer, BBC Studios

After Aim High, Austen co-founded a highly creative and innovative online video company that made absolutely no money. He joined BBCNI Factual as a Shooting Researcher on the “One Show”, which led on to him PD’ing a range of network BBC programmes, bringing him as far afield as Perth, Auckland, Moldova, Helsinki and Aughnacloy. More recently he has been Series Producing and Directing “Matron Medicine and Me” and “Holding Back the Years”, both for BBC One. He is now a Producer for BBC Studios – Unscripted, where he is often overheard talking about his incredibly profitable online video company he helped set up years ago.
