Earlier this month Irish prodco Green Inc. Film & Television announced it was expanding by adding a factual department in London. Mike Reilly is head of factual at the company, having worked for over 13 years in factual entertainment and specialist factual. Over the years he has worked on programs such as Fifth Gear, The Human Guinea Pigs and Seriously Dirty Dancing with Dawn Porter. Here he tells realscreen a few things about himself that others in the industry may not know.

1. I got married on top of the Empire State Building.

2. I stacked shelves in Tescos until I was 26.

3. When I retire I hope to open up a Baboonary in Regent St. – this will be an emporium of baboons – where sophisticated members of society will be able to buy pet baboons. They’re smart, handsome and have teeth as long as a lions – a perfect accessory for the man about town.
