OUR PEOPLE

ALASDAIR MACCUISH
ALASDAIR MACCUISHCREATIVE DIRECTOR
Alasdair set up Bees Nees in 2004 and directs the output from all our creative teams. He started his career as a music producer at the BBC and to date has exec produced over a hundred hours of broadcast television. On a personal note, he firmly believes that the accordion is the finest musical instrument ever invented. Waiting for popular opinion to catch up.

IAIN MACLEOD
IAIN MACLEODHEAD OF PRODUCTION
Produced and directed more hours of TV than he would like to admit. Being weaned on a diet of Kerrs Pink potatoes and Cremola foam are apparently the source of all his powers. Iain is also known for his long (some would say informative!) emails and being ready with a joke to lighten the mood.

DUNCAN MACDONALD
DUNCAN MACDONALDDIRECTOR
In a long career, he has directed events in more countries than the CIA but with much less collateral damage. Duncan can actually direct whilst standing on his head (true). The greatest bassist that Status Quo never had, his philosophy displays a startling clarity: three chords is enough; more than that is jazz. Considers Archie Gemmill’s goal against Holland in the 1978 World Cup Finals the most heroic act by a Scotsman on a foreign field.

KEN MUTCH
KEN MUTCHPRODUCER
Another of our seasoned music producers, Kenny knows more about popular music than, well, almost everyone. His Aberdonian roots means that he has been known to haggle the price of a packet of crisps, but more shocking than that, his favourite pastime is to wear his lime-green mankini! Ask nicely and we’ll send you a picture!

HELEN BELL
HELEN BELLOPERATIONS MANAGER
A true professional and generally more steps ahead of the field than Usain Bolt, her unruffled, serene presence in a room is a cast iron guarantee that – hey, we got this covered. Like Lara Croft, Helen makes seemingly impossible tasks appear possible, usually with fewer corpses and less tomb raiding. Her mission statement can be distilled into three words: sorting it out.

EWAN DUNCAN
EWAN DUNCAN RESEARCHER
Insists that he’s from Newtonmore but since he has never mentioned shinty, we don’t believe him. As music researcher, Ewan is a walking repository of traditional music knowledge and believes that bothering musicians with questions is the finest job in the world. Accomplished musician he may well be, but his conviction that the highest cultural art form is a March/Strathspey/Reel competition remains baffling.
