Nick Handel is a former BBC TV producer whose many credits include In At The Deep End (with Chris Serle and Paul Heiney), Jobs For The Girls (with Pauline Quirke and Linda Robson) and Children in Need.

His production career began in local radio where one of his duties was writing and presenting a thrice-weekly children's story slot; then came the move to network radio as a producer in Light Entertainment, where he made comedy and factual entertainment for Radios 2 and 4. One of his programmes was was 'Ask a Silly Question!' (a somewhat unusual idea for a radio quiz in that all the contestants were dummies - led by Basil Brush).

Moving to television in the mid-seventies, Nick became film director on That's Life!, making stars of Tramp (an Old English sheepdog who drove a car) and Prince (a Yorkshire Terrier who made the word "Sausages!" a national catchphrase). Since then, he has made documentaries and factual series on a wide range of subjects from missing persons to the price of fame. Now freelance, he spends much of his time training producers and directors both at the BBC and for many leading independent production companies.
