Her first contact with broadcasting was as a child, appearing on All Your Own with Hugh Weldon as a pianist composer. Her second was as a teenager, when she persuaded the BBC to allow her to take a tape recorder and record her family’s return visit to India – the land of her birth – resulting in a programme.
The seeds were sewn, producing a notion that it would be wonderful to work in the BBC. And this is what happened, after studying music, and before she took to writing. She became first a radio studio manager in Broadcasting House, and then a PA/director in BBC Music and Arts Television.
Her passion for broadcasting – both for radio and television remains undiminished.
