Richard was invited to direct 2nd Unit on several episodes of the popular series “Strikeback”. The series focuses on a team of special operatives working for a secretive unit of British military intelligence. This latest series, part of which Richard shot in Thailand, sees Sullivan Stapleton and Philip Winchester return as ‘Section 20’ operatives.
In 2001 Richard both produced and directed a new F1 TV series in a magazine style format called "Inside Line". It was very well received throughout the paddock and leading sports networks, as at the time this was a completely new approach to presenting prime time motor racing, involving a far more documentary-style study of the lives of all the people working behind the scenes of Formula 1..
