It was Mark’s programme in 2012 for ITV’s Exposure that finally exposed Jimmy Savile as one of the nations worst ever paedophiles. As a direct result of Mark’s investigation, the Metropolitan police set up Operation Yewtree which led to the arrest of high profile celebrities Rolf Harris and Max Clifford.

His first series reviewed the murder of Carole Packman who went missing in 1985, and whilst her husband is in jail for her murder, her body has never been found. As a direct result of this series and the NEW evidence Mark found, Dorset police have now re-opened the case. The Investigator is currently being shown worldwide on Netflix.
In February 2016 Mark was given his own crime strand on ITV’s This Morning – ‘Unsolved’ which looked at undetected crime. His first three cases were the murders of Jill Dando and Claudia Lawrence and the disappearance of the Malaysian flight MH370.
