Esther’s achievements whilst working at the BBC
Esther started her entertainment career working behind the scenes. She initially started training as a studio manager for radio. She then moved on to the TV side of the business, getting a job in the program-planning department.
She ended up working as a researcher on several BBC shows. After working as one of the co-presenters on Braden’s week she would eventually (1973) be given the opportunity to present her own program. This happened when the BBC decided to launch a new show called That’s Life.
The show was a massive success. Over it’s 21 years it reached audiences of over 18 million viewers. Although Esther liked to investigate injustices, and often brought things to the attention of the public, the show also featured its fair share of light entertainment.
Esther’s won several battles for the public, using That’s Life as a platform to name and shame those who took no action. She was a major factor in vehicle manufacturers making rear seat-belts standard in cars, as well as in making children’s playgrounds safer.Open Claim Calculator
