About TimD

I’m Tim and I shoot and edit some of the films for the Happynesshub. I’ve known our Head of Happyness for many, many years and have been involved in loads of programme ideas and projects about the subject. But ultimately, I think whist I’ve been filming and editing about this lots, I’m not sure if I’ve truly looked at what makes me happy…

Happiness 2050

I was recently filming at a careers event aimed at school students, showing them the range of job options that were available to them - with speakers talking about various college courses, apprenticeships and jobs. One of the interesting talks was aimed at getting young people to think about how employment [...]

Posting Positively

When it comes to social media I have a passive approach – I don’t tend to post much about what’s going on in my life, but I do like to dip in to see what other people are up to. This can help to keep me connected to those I don’t [...]

Young? Old? Be Happy!

Greetings from Swansea Hubbers! Over the past few months I’ve been working on location in this Welsh city filming our latest show for CBeebies (watch out for details next year!). Over the course of my time here, there has been a reoccurring theme cropping up - the older generation. It started [...]

Targeting New Experiences

It’s 9:30 am on Saturday and I’m on my way to a beginner’s course in archery – something I’ve been thinking about for a long time (much longer than I should have!) but not really done anything about. All too often it’s easy to make excuses, particularly with the day job [...]

Colour me Happy

It’s Wednesday night and I’m sat at home looking around the room thinking maybe, after 4 years, it’s time for a fresh lick of paint. You see, when I renovated my house I decided to do the simple thing and paint everything the same colour – Natural Hessian. Ever since I’ve [...]

Having a Healthy Smartphone Relationship

So it’s 1715 and I have to be in central London for 1900. Out comes the smart phone, open up TFL and I work out that it’ll take 55 minutes to get there on the tube. Open the Waze sat nav, 57 minutes to drive there. I’ll go for the tube [...]

Friendships at 40

A few weeks ago I reached the big 4-0. I know, I know, I don’t look a day over 25 (or so I like to tell myself). So, in preparation for the big day I went through the usual dilemma of what I should do. Having a birthday in February does [...]

Friends – The Key to Happiness

A couple of weeks ago I, and a group of my friends, took a trip to the Emerald Isle to celebrate one of us turning the big 4-0. We’ve known each other for nearly 30 years (I know what you’re thinking – how can that be possible? You don’t look like [...]

Solving the Happiness Equation

I do love a good equation. It’s probably down to my science background, having studied Chemistry at university. It often helps to understand and explain complex things. Recently whilst looking on the Internet I came across Mo Gawdat, a Chief Business Officer for Google, who claims to have come up with [...]
