From ‘Finding Hygge’ in Denmark, to interviewing the likes of Ken Livingstone, Quentin Tarantino and Julie Andrews (and even reporting on sheep racing in Sark), Tessa’s colourful journalistic career certainly gave her an eclectic start to storytelling.

Emma Hayward

Writer

A true wordsmith, Emma has been a journalist for more than 20 years, covering international and domestic news for Al Jazeera, BBC, Channel 4 and ITN. Her stories include: Covid-19, Brexit, the Paris terror attacks and climate change. Not shy of asking tough questions to get to the truth, Emma has interviewed Boris Johnson, Phillip Green and Tracey Emin. 

Off-script:

One of Emma’s most enlightening (ahem) assignments was covering the total solar eclipse in the Faroes. Given darkness only fell for a matter of minutes (and the next one isn’t until 2245), it was a huge relief she did her piece to camera right the first take.
