About me

Beth read Modern Languages, graduating in 2003 without a clue what she wanted to do. Through a combination of luck and relentless hard work, she found her way into a career in broadcasting, and has never looked back. She worked her way through the television ranks, starting as a runner and researcher on a variety of programmes, from BBC Two’s The Big Read to the ITV daytime hit Boot Sale Challenge, to Graham Norton, before finding that she liked living dangerously and moving into live television. For the past 10 years, she has worked for Princess Productions on programmes such as The Wright Stuff and The Saturday Show. She is now a series producer, a role that encompasses everything from script writing and editing, to legal compliance, to generating ideas that will engage and entertain viewers, all working closely with both editorial staff and the presenting team. She has recently returned to freelancing (see above re: living dangerously) and is combining her TV work with a sideways move into live sports production. In this capacity she has worked on events including the 2015 Rugby World Cup and the 2017 Asian Indoor Games.
