At the ABC, in his capacity as an executive producer, Ivo delivered more than 20 series including the award winning youth series Wise Up and the nightly public affairs series, George Negus Tonight, which he ran for more than 500 episodes.
While at the ABC Ivo developed the self shot genre with series like Home Truths, Nurses and After The Fires. As the executive producer of Race Around Oz he continued his strong interest in providing ordinary Australians with a voice on prime time television.
The award winning historical docu-drama, Love Letters from a War, was an example of marrying different production styles to create strong narrative. Ivo developed the history genre further when he transported 16 adventurous Australians back in time in the Wall-to-Wall format, Outback House. This observational series set on a recreated sheep station in 1861, tested our modern-day time travelers to survive the rigors of pioneering life.
Ivo has produced two seminal documentaries on the history of Australian Indigenous people: Benny and The Dreamers – produced with the last five Pintubi to make white contact, and Satellite Dreaming – about the Indigenous use of radio and television in remote and urban Australia.
Ivo was the executive producer of Nine’s hit series Missing Persons Unit, a show that began the current trend in police observational TV series.
Burum Media is now delivering mobile journalism training and helping develop web TV formats in communities, education and mainstream media in Australian and internationally. This unique digital story-telling concept, originating from Ivo’s early self shot series, is based on a set of digital skills that enables citizens and professional journalists to cross the digital divide, to produce their own mobile stories.
