My services

A wide range of research skills

Bespoke research services

I offer personalised research services in all areas, from people search to business intelligence.

Multimedia productions

I can flesh out a basic programme idea, or find sources and track down contributors which will help make your story stand out. I can also help you find stand-out archive.

Books, theses and screenplays

I can assist you if you require some background research done or require someone to scour archive collections and copy records.

Genealogy and family history

I can research your family history by using traditional and less conventional methods.

About Gregor Murbach

An all-round, resourceful independent researcher

I am a professional freelance researcher

In a world of information overload, I am able to source and track down the right answers to help take your projects forward.

Previously, I was an assistant producer on a range of critically acclaimed programmes for British and international TV channels, including the BBC, Channel Four and CNN.

Well travelled, fluent in French and German, discreet and reliable (I’m Swiss, it’s in the genes), I have a degree in International Relations and a Masters in Documentary Production.

I have been an independent researcher for many archives and collections, including the National Archives, the British Library and the National Maritime Museum in London.

In recent years, I have broadened my research skills, with experience in film and photo analysis, people search and business intelligence.

When not working, I enjoy "analog" photography, dark room processing (I have a particular interest in processing old undeveloped films retrieved from vintage cameras), cooking and running. I also run oldcookoo.com, an online shop selling photo prints.
