Our Comment

"Emily has also presented a number of topical BBC documentaries including profiles of Facebook (Inside Facebook: Mark Zuckerberg’s $100bn Gamble), Donald Trump (All American Billionaire) and Nicolas Sarkozy (President Bling Bling?). Being one of the most recognised faces on BBC television news, Emily pulls from her established career to give clear and well-informed commentary on current affairs."
