Our super panel discuss how they got into TV, barriers they have faced and how they have overcome them.

Is TV somewhere you can work if you have a disability? Spoiler alert: the answer is yes! In this revealing discussion, five talented individuals from in front and behind the camera talk about the challenges they have faced and their journeys to success. From the commissioning editor who oversees popular series such as Escape to the Country and the Great British Menu to the man who deployed a Natural History Unit wheelchair user on a foreign shoot for the first time, this Q&A is all about saying ‘yes you can!’ Hosted by Newsround presenter Martin Dougan this Q&A features Julie Shaw, BBC Daytime Commissioning Editor, Jay Francis, Freelance Online Editor, Corie Brown, Channel 4 Continuity Announcer and Doug Mackay-Hope, NHU Executive Producer.
