The broadcaster and Tomorrow’s World presenter weighs in on the dearth of quality science reporting, media ageism… and her time as an ‘agony aunt.’
Science broadcaster Vivienne famously presented Tomorrow’s World and Panorama. In her pursuit to explain science to the public, she also wrote columns for The Times, The Guardian, and The News of the World; and was resident agony aunt, Lydia Mogg, for Good Housekeeping. In this in-depth interview, she walks through her career; criticises the television media for ageism against women; defends science reporters without an academic background; argues there’s too little space for quality science reporting on TV, and calls on the BBC to bring back Tomorrow’s World.
