    About me

    Hello! Thanks for visiting. My name is Derek (Del). Originally born in Scotland, I have lived in London for 20 years, attaining both Honours and Masters degrees in music. I’ve worked in the TV and Film industry since 2003 – both on camera and behind the scenes – and could be considered a near daily fixture on national TV, with well over 15,000 hours of live television presentation experience to my name. I have also hosted many prestigious live events, and have been an actor in several TV series and dramas. Read on to find out more.

    From appearing as Pilot “Jerry Smith” in the International TV docudrama “Air Crash Confidential 2018” (WMR/ZDF/Discovery/Channel 9 Australia), in-studio cameraman in the critically acclaimed ITV Drama "Quiz", weatherman ‘Joe Randall’ in the BBC 2 comedy series “Broken News” alongside Benedict Cumberbatch and Indira Varma, playing an FBI Informant in “The Real Story of The Infiltrator” (ITV Studios Global Entertainment/WMR 2019), to working as a quiz and game-show host on terrestrial channels FIVE, ITV 1 and STV (ITV 1 Scotland) for NetPlayTV, Quizcall & The Great Big Quiz – I’ve had a wide range of experience, and even have an excellent knowledge of gemstone jewellery, which I put to use presenting on Freeview based TJC (The Jewellery Channel).

    I also enjoy presenting live events, cover presenting the 2019 Ideal Home Show at Olympia, London and presenting the 2018 and 2019 Ideal Home Show main-stage in Scotland at the SEC in Glasgow (interviewing and working alongside Phil Spencer, Rosemary Shrager, Nick Knowles, David Domoney, John Amabile, Amanda Lamb, Kunle Barker and more).

    At Infosec 2019 (London Olympia) I presented an IT security segment for cybersecurity company Varonis, and fronted the original 2010 Miss Great Britain London heat at West End nightclub “MAYA”.

    I also toured with the new Channel 4 Home strand sponsor Hillary’s Blinds “Hillary’s Experience Expo 2018” roadshow – presenting to thousands across the UK.

    Having worked alongside Gloria Hunniford, Anthony Worrall Thompson and Linda Barker and appeared in the publications OK! Magazine, Daily Express and Daily Star as an anchor presenter for Richard Desmond’s Daily Express TV venture, I also spearheaded the International Emmy Award winning internet project We-Dig.TV; a revolutionary site which gives players at home the chance to participate and interact in Deal or No Deal, Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Blockbuster and other top game-shows, interacting with footage of the original hosts.

    It isn’t just presenting and acting that are my loves however, I am also an experienced composer and sound designer having written music for many UK and international television projects.

    My company, Derek Gibbons NewMedia Ltd, has composed music for programming on Five, Five USA, Fiver, TJC, CNN, Zee TV India, UTV Ireland and more.

    As a pianist and producer, I have written across a vast range of genres and also work as a professional audiovisual editor from our well equipped studio.

    "Derek combines originality with consistently high quality. He has a great understanding of the project, and is extremely user-friendly!"

    Michael Leggo - Former Head of BBC Light Entertainment

    "WOW.... just received some of the DVD's and they look fantastic.... love the layout and function.

    Beautiful presentation of artwork and love the way there is a little 'movement' in the stills of the slideshow when the DVD first opens.

    :-) Thanks again -

    Thank you, Thank you...... "

    Britta Pollard, Southern Palms Holiday Resorts (DVD Video and DVD-Rom kiosk presentation designed by Derek Gibbons for Southern Palms and Exposure4)

    "We, The Jewellery Channel, have been impressed with the level of service and the results of The Jewellery Channel's international music. Derek has completely helped to create our on-air feel, adding both pace and drama to our exciting channels.

    We would definitely recommend Derek and look forward to working with him on any future global projects as we found him to be friendly, fast and efficient"

    Pardip Ram,

    Head of International Broadcasting

    The Jewellery Channel

    (U.K., U.S. and German international shopping channel network)

    Over 15000+ hours of live UK TV presentation experience. Also a trained Pixelpower Clarity graphics operative, trained at Pixelpower head offices in Cambridge.

    I am looking to continue my career in the broadcast industry by complimenting my current studio work. I strive to be part of an innovative and professional studio environment that fully utilises my qualifications whilst furthering my experience and creativity. In addition, I use my music and audio training (Bachelor and Masters Degrees in Music) to write music for film, TV and multimedia productions.
