I’m Anna – 17 years a journalist and all my life a farmer’s daughter. I tell stories about farming, the environment and rural life.
I’m a freelance TV director, radio producer, writer, broadcaster, blogger, Nuffield Farming Scholar, media trainer and public speaker.
Before taking the decision to go freelance in 2018, I covered rural affairs at the BBC; directing BBC One’s Countryfile, producing and presenting Radio 4’s Farming Today, On Your Farm and Costing the Earth and reporting on agricultural issues for BBC News and the World Service. I write for various publications, ranging from trade press to national newspapers and magazines.
I believe farming and rural issues deserve more attention and greater understanding in the mainstream media. I do my bit through good storytelling, thought-provoking journalism and enabling people at the grassroots of agriculture to share their own stories.
I’m a flexible freelancer, available for short and long term contracts in TV and radio production. And like all good programme makers, I’m versatile. I can turn my hand to any story or genre (it doesn’t have to be about farming!)
A Nuffield Scholar with extensive public speaking experience in the UK and around the world, I am also available for talks, workshops and conferences.
Bristol and Shropshire based. If you would like to get in touch please drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
