The North West Resource for Broadcast Editors
Justin Morris



Justin Morris

I am a fast and hard working editor with strong story telling skills and a passion for making compelling television.

I have been freelance since 2002 and work mostly on factual entertainment, observational documentaries, sport and children's programmes.

I work on Avid and Premiere and am based in Manchester.

I began as a tech op and Avid editor in the Yorkshire Television newsroom.

In the last 10 years I have worked extensively at BBC Media City on programmes such as ‘The One Show’', ‘Blue Peter’ and 'Match of the Day’.

‘Winter On The Farm’ - Daisybeck Studios for Channel 5

Drama, humour and emotion as Helen Skelton and Jules Hudson join farming brothers Rob and Dave Nicholson and their huge array of animals thriving in the Yorkshire countryside. I edited 4-5mins VT's and stitched the pre-recorded Christmas show.

'Fraud Squad' - Brown Bob Productions for BBC One

Offline editing 10-20 minute films tracking down criminals who steal millions of pounds from the public purse. Fast turnaround with 2-3 days edit time per film.

‘Shoplifters: At War With The Law’ - Crackit Productions for Channel 5

Follows the private security teams catching robbers, thieves and pickpockets across the UK.

‘The One Show’ - BBC One

Current affairs films for The One Show about subjects such as backlogs in payments of disability allowance and the Silver Line helpline for older people.

‘Match Of The Day’ - BBC One

I cut down Premier League matches on a fast turnaround to tell the story of the game, adding interviews and graphics to create a broadcast ready highlights package.

‘Blue Peter’ - CBBC

Offline editing of 5 minute VT’s, often pulling together multi-camera self-shot material of Blue Peter presenters bravely taking on daredevil challenges.

‘Rip Off Britain: Holidays’ - BBC One

Offline editing of 10 minute films telling viewers real life stories of eagerly anticipated holidays turning sour due to bedbugs, hurricanes and non-existent hotels.

‘Football Focus’ - BBC One

Interviews with Premier League stars such as Michail Antonio and John Stones. Plus features which could be anything from an obit to news stories about FIFA corruption allegations or historical sex abuse in football.

‘Rio Olympics 2016’ - BBC1 and BBC4

I spent a month in Rio editing sport VT’s for network output, often to very tight deadlines.

‘Great Escapers’ - True North Productions for Channel 4

Dramatic and humorous daytime series following expats from around the UK as they set up businesses and begin new lives across Europe.
