Altogether I've been working for nine years as a journalist. I completed the NCTBJ recognised PG Dip Broadcast Journalism course in 1995, from Falmouth College of Arts. Starting off in local radio I've been lucky enough to work across a range of outlets - BBC Radio 5, BBC Radio 4, BBC World Service and BBC News 24/World. I've also gone abroad to work as a reporter in India and Australia filing back pieces and presented a news analysis programme for another international broadcaster in the Netherlands.
