Robert Lamb set up One Planet Pictures in 2005, and he is a founding "director of TVE, Robert Lamb maintains his links with the non-profit world via Dev TV. One Planet is working closely with Dev TV on the start up of its broadband channel." [1] (About Us)

"Robert Lamb began his career in television as a graduate trainee with the BBC. After three years as a sub-editor and reporter, he moved to an ITV network station making a weekly current affairs programme.

"Robert Lamb later joined the Earthscan team at the International Institute for Environment and Development. He established with Anil Agarawal, the first environmental news features service. At the beginning of the 1980s Lamb was with the International Union for Conservation of Nature in Switzerland as a communications chief. He later joined the United Nations Environment Programme in Nairobi as a science writer.

"Though he was to stay as a senior consultant to UNEP until 1992, from the mid-80s most of his time was spent on building up the TV Trust for the Environment (TVE). In almost two decades with the Trust, he variously commissioned, co-produced, produced, directed nearly 1000 films that have won hundreds of international awards. On the 20th anniversary of the UNEP governing Council where TVE was launched, Lamb stepped aside as Director to concentrate full time on programme production via the weekly Earth Report series.

"In March 2006, he stepped down as Editor of Earth Report after the transmission of the 400th programme. In 2005 Robert joined Dev TV, a Swiss non-profit organisation as Senior Executive Producer. The first collaboration with Dev TV was the broadcast on BBC World of acclaimed Medecins Sans Frontiers series Doctors on the Front Line. Four other ...on the Front Line series are in various stages of production.

"Robert Lamb has worked as a policy and communications consultant with many international agencies, including the World Bank, Global Environment Facility, Unicef and the World Conservation Union." [2]
