Social Anthropology

Alastair Cook

I studied anthropology because I'd always being fascinated by other countries and had an enquiring mind.

I'm a director of documentaries and commercials. Last year I made 'The Men Who Jump off Buildings' for Channel 4 - about a couple of bandit base jumpers.

I love my job; it's fun and well paid. 

The three years doing a Social Anthropology degree were great. It taught me to think about things differently and laterally. This has proved invaluable in generating ideas and approaches in my film making career.
