TV work includes writing and presenting documentaries on teen crime for Channel 4 and documentaries on pop culture for Channel 5. In 2007, he presented the well-received BBC3 documentary Bust My Ass about civil liberties and the right to protest, and followed this with another BBC3 documentary Sex, Lies And Gagging Orders, which looked into the phone hacking and super-injunction scandals.
Sam is also often seen across various TV channels (particularly SkyNews) and radio stations as a pundit on news, sport and entertainment.
Away from the TV cameras and radio microphones, Sam's years of experience as a journalist has seen his name appearing in many leading newspapers and magazines, including The Guardian, The Sun, The Sunday Telegraph, The NME, The Independent, The New Statesman, Grazia, Cosmopolitan, The Big Issue, Four Four Two and The New Humanist. Tom's writing skills have also resulted in two critically acclaimed books: Get Smashed – The Story Of The Men That Made The Ads That Changed Our Lives (2007) and Night Of The Living Dad – Confessions Of A Shabby Father (2009), which follows Sam in his first year of fatherhood as he tries to figure out what a good dad should be, and, even more importantly, what sort of dad he should be!
