I am a regular broadcaster, having appeared on Newsnight, Question Time, Radio 4’s Today Programme, Women’s Hour, Radio 3’s Free Thinking, Radio 4’s PM programme, the Jeremy Vine show, the Daily Politics and BBC Breakfast for the BBC, as well as work for Channel 4 News, CNN and Sky News. I also contribute to arts and history programmes – I recently enjoyed talking viewers through a queen’s bad choices for Oxford Film and TV’s ‘Last Days of Mary Queen of Scots.’
This is a space for me to share clips of some of my broadcasting work, as well as including material on upcoming projects and events. Due to restrictions on copyright and the frequency of my work, it is only a selection.
