Here’s a quick chat with Carol: 

When did you join True North?

April 2009

Anything that stands out about your career?

It has changed so much over the years (decades) and part of the attraction of the role has been working out how to adapt and meet the many challenges thrown at me.

 If you could work on any show what would it be and why? 

I always wanted to be the PM on Michael Palin’s travel shows and travel round the world. In younger days fancied being a Blue Peter presenter. Nowadays it would be anything that meant I could be outdoors in the countryside.
