Amazing Productions brings together four creative programme makers who have a shared vision. Between them they offer a wide spectrum of creative factual and features experience: from ideas generation, to presenting, producing, directing, and programme management.
George is a professional architect and successful presenter, with a passion for architecture, design and history; Michael is an award winning factual film maker; Tania creates and produces factual and features formats, and Rebecca develops and manages successful productions, whilst maintaining broadcaster relationships.
Together George Clarke, Rebecca Mulraine, Tania Fallon and Michael Simkin are Amazing.
Amazing will work with the best-established talent and will seek out and develop exciting new talent, both in front of and behind the camera.
Amazing believes that great television comes from the heart. At the core of the business is a passion to do television better. Amazing will reach out to audiences with intelligent content and high production values; with programmes that have scale and depth across both terrestrial and digital media.

In 2008 he became the face of architecture at Channel 4 with the launch of The Home Show, showing how clever design can make a home more functional and beautiful on a tight budget.
