About Paul Heiney

Paul Heiney regularly hosts events, gives informative keynote speeches, and presents corporate productions.  Paul has turned his hand to a number of different roles and presenting jobs whilst capturing the hearts of the general public.


Paul Heiney is well remembered for ‘That’s Life’ in the early 80’s which led to a long string of successful shows including ‘In at the Deep End’ (BBC1), ‘This Sunday’ (ITV), ‘Food and Drink’ (BBC2), ‘Lion Country’ (BBC 1), ‘Crossing Rome’ (ITV) as well as many series on rural affairs ITV Anglia.

On radio Paul has presented many programmes including for BBC Radio 4 – ‘You and Yours’, ‘Today’, ‘Home Truths’ and ‘On Your Farm’. Paul has had a rich life outside broadcasting, with over a dozen books to his credit, both fiction and non-fiction, he is a widely read author. He has written on rural, maritime and farming matters, and popular science.

Paul has since gone on to work for BBC One’s esteemed Watchdog and ITV Countryfile. In 2011 he featured alongside Melanie Sykes on the Geneology programme called Missing Millions.

He has also found time to be a pioneer organic farmer when, in 1990, he decided to master the skills of traditional farming using carthorses, Suffolk Punches, instead of tractors, and farmed 40 acres of Suffolk countryside. This experience inspired not only his hugely successful column, ‘Farmer’s Diary’, which appeared weekly in The Times for seven years, but also a number of books.

In 2005, he fulfilled a longstanding ambition to sail the Atlantic singlehanded in the wake of the solo sailing pioneers, which led to his book ‘The Last Man across the Atlantic’.
