Scrum V people - Huw 'Tal' Davies

Get to know the team who make the Scrum V show...

Huw 'Tal' Davies

Huw is the outside broadcast producer for the Friday night Scrum V Live programmes and also produces the Sunday show.

How did you get into it?

I started back in 1988 as a runner for BBC Radio Wales, Radio Cymru and Wales on Saturday.

Believe it or not, the other runner at that time was Hollywood actor, Ioan Gruffudd. I bet he is so jealous!

I was offered a job as researcher for Radio Sport, just in time for the 1991 Rugby World Cup.

I was delighted and proud to accept, and have never looked back.

I turned to the television side of things in 1994, working on Scrum V, and for the last year I have been the producer of Scrum V Live.

Your best and worst moments?

I have had too many best moments to mention, but the one that I'm most proud of is co-producing "Working Class Hero", an award-winning documentary on Neil Jenkins.

It was very special as I've known Neil since junior rugby at Llantwit Fardre, a long, long time ago!

The funniest was when I interviewed Tom Jones and the Stereophonics before that famous win against England at Wembley and the Scott Gibbs try.

I asked them to send a best wishes message to one of my good mates, and then played it at his wedding.

You should have seen the people's faces!

Advice to anyone interested in doing your job?

I'm planning on being here a while, so you can't have my job!

Teams/sports followed:

All sports excluding cricket. Rugby obviously being my favourite.

Favourite player:

Will always be Neil Jenkins and Scott Gibbs. Jonathan Davies was not bad either!

Favourite match:

Any involving Pontypridd and obviously Wales, especially beating England in '99.

PS - He's known as Huw 'Tal' because he's quite tall!
