WORDS & MUSIC PROGRAMMES
This week we’ve had a visit from Jag Dosanjh and Val Richards from DISC, the Birmingham based service offering help for carers of patients with dementia. They’ll be telling us all about the support they provide and how you can find out more. Plus we’ll be hearing about the fantastic fundraising events the hospitals’ charity has planned in the run up to Christmas. All that and more from noon on bhbn.net                        Repeated on Thursday at 4pm.

Just look at her CV!

Philippa gets to go out and about to meet interesting people and find out what they’re up to!

Philippa is a full time Mum to toddler twins, however before they came along she had a busy career in broadcasting and communications.

She started reading the news on Manchester’s Key 103 as well as covering breaking news and sport stories.  From there she moved in to television where she spent ten years working as a reporter and presenter for ITV.  She then became a communications adviser to government Ministers at the Energy and Climate Change department before moving to the consumer organisation Which?.

Over the course of her career, Philippa has interviewed some famous faces and big names including former US Vice President Al Gore, former Prime Ministers Tony Blair and John Major and three of the Spice Girls (Posh and Scary have eluded her…so far!).

Her claim to fame if she needs anymore, is that she was once in a pantomime with the singer Sam Smith!
