About Jules

countryman, craftsman, archaeologist, historian

Over the last decade, Jules has established himself as an engaging and versatile writer and broadcaster. His interests in country life, archaeology, architecture and both social and military history have combined with his natural warmth and good humour to deliver a wide ranging and memorable raft of series.

As the leading face of the BBC's rural property flagship Escape to the Country he's known to millions, an audience he also developed in Britain's Heritage Heroes and Britain's Empty Homes. Yet his passion for the past has also brought an enthusiastic and accessible approach to military history, notably Dig 1940, Dive World War 2, and How we won the War, all for the BBC. His most recent foray, Defenders of the Sky for the History Channel H2, saw Jules explore Britain's aviation history, revealing the stories behind ten of the country's most famous and important airfields.

A keen countryman and craftsman, Jules spends his spare time renovating his period home and garden in Herefordshire and rescuing old furniture, ably assisted by his partner Tania, their new baby boy Jack, and Labradors Teddy and Iolo.
