In 2015, Davin-Power co-presented the RTÉ documentary Gallipoli - Ireland's Forgotten Heroes, discussing the World War One campaign from an Irish perspective. Davin-Power's involvement with the programme was motivated in part by the fact that one of his grandfathers, Frank Power from Kimmage in Dublin, enlisted in the Royal Dublin Fusiliers and fought at Gallipoli.
