WRITING & BROADCASTING
Rebecca’s early career was in journalism, working first as reporter and then deputy editor of one of the Financial Times magazines. It was writing for the FT Weekend that she was assigned to Everest and discovered her passion for climbing. She continues to draw on her experiences of the outdoors and business to write articles for The FT, as well as the Times, The Independent, The Telegraph and The Mail on Sunday. She has regularly appeared on television, as a presenter on Tomorrow’s World, Science Zone and Enterprise South, and as a guest on Call my Bluff, Through the Keyhole, Blue Peter, Ridge Riders, The Battle of the Books, and Date with an Artist. In 2003, she was a judge for the Man Booker prize for contemporary literature.
