Telesgop has undergone a management buy-out. Elin Rhys, MD, who founded the company on May the 4th 1993, and Richard Rees who later joined from the BBC in 1995 are taking a step back to allow Dyfrig Davies, who has been with the company for 23 years, to take the helm as MD and Ffion Rees to become a company director.
Together Dyfrig and Ffion have the majority shareholding, with Elin and Richard maintaining a small percentage. Elin assumes the role of Chair in the new structure and resumes her love of making science programmes on radio. Richard continues to present a weekly radio show on BBC Radio Cymru, which he has done since the seventies, and also carries out filming for his natural history documentaries. Dyfrig, in addition to management, is executive producer on Telesgop’s longest running series’, and Ffion is a radio producer and video editor.
