On Tuesday 6th March, Emilia Chittick, Sophie Lyster and I had the amazing opportunity to meet and interview Professor Mary Beard at the BBC. We interviewed her two days prior to International Women’s Day, so we seized the opportunity to ask her some questions about her inspirations from ancient history that influenced her feminist views. We were amazed and inspired by all her experiences and stories of her time working on civilisations and encountering quirky ancient artefacts. We asked her some fun questions too, such as; if she could have dinner with anyone from history, who would she choose? To which, she had a few very interesting people lined up!
As a Moving Image Art student, this experience was fascinating and interesting as I got to witness first hand what goes on behind the scenes of the BBC and it has inspired me further to pursue a career in the film industry.
