I’ve co-written several documentary screenplays with Marc Eberle, including the seminal The Most Secret Place on Earth for ARTE, NDR & WDR.

The Most Secret Place on Earth is a documentary by filmmakers Marc Eberle and Tom Vater, uncovering the history of covert American involvement in Laos during the ’60s. The film interviews key players of the secret war including former CIA agents, American pilots, Lao fighters, and war reporters taking the viewer on a journey into the physical heart of the conflict.

The Vietnam War was the most intensely televised war ever. However, next door in neighbouring Laos, the longest and largest air war in human history was underway, one which eventually made Laos the most bombed country on earth. The film reconstructs the gripping story of the operation and illustrates its relevance to current American military conflicts.

More recently, I worked with James Newman on three episodes of Escapology, an ill-fated travel series to be produced for Netflix.
