"Peg was a natural, a shameless flirt with an alternative interview style to mainstream presenters. She had politicians eating out of her hand thanks to her warmth and subject knowledge. Memorable with an easy, natural style of delivery."

what's on magazine show
I am an award winning* experienced factual freelance TV presenter.
I'm a colourful, knowledgeable, warm, English Northerner. An optimist with a real love for life, I'm all about people, their stories, politics and what makes the world go round.
My speciality is observation and getting all sorts of people to talk with me: honestly, freely, with humour and candour.
Over 100 episodes of Between the Lines, a live news chat show. A lighthearted dash through:
"You did make me feel 'Wow! Perhaps I've done something here!'. So whatever your technique or personality you do bring out the best in people!"
Comment from one interviewee
I have anchored live studio shows - such as a live General Election Debate - and shows recorded as live both on location and in the studio, as well as filming scripted pieces on location. To date most of my shows have been current affairs programmes, from an your long filmed current affairs discussion show filmed on location with a number of guests and up to 4 subjects; two series of an intense one to one political interview show; through to my current show, a lively and often lighthearted live news chat show. My interests are the world we live and life in general. I try to make all my politics and current affairs discussion very real and human.
My politics and current affairs approach is non confrontational. I encourage discussion and exploration of issues rather than conflict and disagreement, without ducking issues. I am really interested in finding out about values, beliefs and motivations as much as policies, because that's when people, particularly politicians, often feel able to honestly talk about their actions and future plans. I bring as humour as much as I can to my shows.
