The risks of repeatedly going undercover have meant that MacIntyre has increasingly turned to presenting on films where his colleagues have undertaken the undercover work. He has also branched out into more traditional presenting roles, on weather phenomena and wildlife documentaries. In 2007 he directed the “A Very British Gangster”
In 2009, MacIntyre took part in “Dancing on Ice” where he was runner-up and in 2014, he participated in the first series of “The Jump” where he was also runner-up.
MacIntyre currently fronts the documentary series “Donal MacIntyre: Unsolved”, which looks at unsolved cold cases such as abductions and murders, that MacIntyre and his team of experts try to shed new light upon.
