His television credits include the ‘In-Colour’ genre of historical documentaries, notably the BAFTA and Grierson winner Britain at War in Colour and the Peabody winner The Second World War in Colour.

He also launched Trans World Sport in 1987, Futbol Mundial in 1993, the International Olympic Committee Camera of Record in 1994 and the Olympic Television Archive Bureau in 1996.

Currently chief executive and co-founder, with his wife, Lucy, of the independent production and distribution company Big Ape Media International, Stewart has in recent years continued to specialize in historical documentaries, including a series on the Korean War, the history of Indo-China and a major study of modern Japan.

His previous novels Conquest, Crusade and Anarchy were published to great acclaim.

Stewart’s passion is English history, especially its origins and folklore. His home is in Somerset, where he lives with his wife and twin boys, Charlie and Jack.
