Sky Vision's Jane Millichip mixes it up on a global scale

Like the sheep and pigs that she rears with her husband at their Cotswold home, Sky Vision Managing Director Jane Millichip is a rare breed. A mixologist, surfer and former journalist, Millichip has worked across television sales, commissioning and acquisitions. She is renowned for her business acumen and an ability to build relationships with producers.

It goes without saying that you need to be bold to work in television, but CPL Managing Director Danielle Lux took that advice to the extreme when she carried out a management buyout of Who Wants to be a Millionaire? Producers Celador, all while pregnant with her daughter Talia.

Lux studied French and Italian at Oxford before embarking on her television career, where her first job was as a reporter on BBC youth shows. She was promoted to producer just a year later by then-boos Janet Street-Porter.
