Madeleine was the first Arts and Culture Correspondent on BBC 2′s Newsnight. In her ten years on the programme, she interviewed everyone from George Clooney to Beryl Cook and was known for her tough interviewing style and hard-hitting reports on arts issues.
Madeleine’s twenty year career at the BBC embraced both television and radio. She has reported for all the big programmes, including Radio 4’s Today programme, and covered some of the biggest stories – such as the death of Princess Diana. She has interviewed world figures, among them Paul McCartney, David Hockney and the Aga Khan.
Prior to her BBC career Madeleine studied history at Cambridge University, worked in local newspapers and local radio and was a presenter on regional television. She has also had articles published in the national press and chaired conferences about arts and culture.
Madeleine must be one of the most qualified journalists available to help anyone in the arts understand the media or prepare for interviews.
Madeleine speaks workable French.
