About Colin

Colin Babb

I describe myself as a ‘BBC,’ a British Born Caribbean. My family are from around the Caribbean region including Guyana, Guadeloupe and Barbados.

I’ve worked for the BBC as a radio producer, website producer, broadcast journalist; and as a photographer in Antigua, Barbados, Dominica, Guyana, St.Lucia and Trinidad for education book publishers.

I’ve also worked for the NHS, the Further Education Development Agency (FEDA), as a librarian for law firms and public libraries, an English language teacher in Hong Kong, Hungary, Japan and Thailand, as a website producer for schools and universities, and co-owned an independent music company called Waaaah!/Bring on Bull.

I’ve twice been a lunch time guest with the BBC Test Match Special (TMS) commentary team.

My first appearance was with Tony Cozier and Simon Mann. For the West Indies v Pakistan, 2013 ICC Champions Trophy group match at The Oval.

My second appearance was with Jonathan Agnew. For the England v New Zealand, 2015 One Day International at The Riverside Ground, Durham.
