John Murray is managing director of Crossing the Line Films, one of Ireland’s leading factual producers for the international market. Specialising in documentaries that bring viewers to the remotest corners of the Earth, CTL were the first Irish documentary company to move into HD. He has directed over 30 films for some of the world’s leading broadcasters and has won numerous national and international awards. He has also produced 70 other films with leading Irish and international directors.

John graduated from Trinity College Dublin in Zoology before joining RTÉ as a presenter and reporter on nine different series of science, environmental and health programmes. He was co-author of Lonely Planet’s first ‘Ireland, Travel Survival Kit’. In 1991 he made his first film chronicling the first Irish expedition to attempt an 8000 metre Himalayan peak and since then has made films on Everest, the North Pole, through the Northwest Passage, across Siberia and the Sahara amongst many other locations. He still likes to shoot and direct whenever he gets the chance.
