About the Event

As part of our programme of events to mark this year’s International Women’s Day, we'll be hearing from some of the female team behind UKTV's second series of Women on the Force.

Hosted by Emma Bullimore, we’ll be joined by Helen Nightingale, UKTV Senior Commissioning Editor, Harriet Leaf, producer/ director, Anna Evans, associate producer and PC Uzma from North Yorkshire Police.

The documentary series offers a rare look into North Yorkshire Police, exploring the reality the women on the force face at work and how that balances with their everyday lives out of uniform. The panel will be discussing the new series and sharing behind the scenes insight to the production.
