Her commitment and enthusiasm for subjects such as women’s history (with the BAFTA award winning Suffragettes with Lucy Worsley), Mental Health (BAFTA and RTS nominated David Harewood: Psychosis and Me) and LGBT stories (Gentleman Jack Changed My Life; Tom Daly: Illegal To Be Me) has seen her pioneer the recruitment of fully representative crews and contributors alike.
