Since running away from a career as a barrister many years ago, George has written for and script-edited a wide range of programmes, covering everything from Radio 4's News Quiz and Dead Ringers plus Radio 3’s Saturday Play to the BAFTA-winning Double Take and Emmy-winning Smack the Pony. For children, he has written and script-edited shows
including Dani’s House, Ye Olde Dragon’s Den, the much-garlanded Horrible Histories and the International Kids Emmy winner, Hank Zipzer’s Christmas Catastrophe. In addition to TV and radio, George has worked as writer and narrative designer on several videogame projects, from indie projects like Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Adventure to AAA games like Wonderbook: Book of Potions from JK Rowling.
