Queen Mary’s Alumni Engagement Team is delighted to be launching their new alumni engagement series ‘Alumni Angles’ on Thursday 25 February 2021 with a special online conversation between BBC newsreader and Queen Mary alumna, Jane Hill (Politics BA, 1991), Professor Rainbow Murray, Professor of Politics, and Tiana Dinard-Samuel, Queen Mary Students' Union's Vice President Communities. 

From 6-7:30pm, Jane will reflect on her 25+ year career in broadcast journalism, life at the BBC and the importance of inclusion and role modelling. This event is being held in celebration of LGBTQ+ History Month and is open to everyone - alumni, staff and current students, prospective students and the general public.

Jane Hill presents the BBC News at One on BBC1. She graduated from Queen Mary University of London with a BA in Politics in 1991 and joined the BBC as a graduate. She has covered many high profile stories including the terrorist attack at London Bridge; the Grenfell Tower fire; the murder of Jo Cox MP; US Presidential elections, and the disappearance of Madeleine McCann in Portugal. Outside of the newsroom, she was named in the 2020 Visible Lesbian 100 list and is deeply committed to equality, diversity and inclusion: she is involved with a number of charities and organisations that highlight the value of inclusion and role modelling.
