Carol Haslam joined the Board of Trustees of One World Media in the early nineties.

"Carol started her career as a lecturer in social studies and as a trainee psychotherapist. All this changed after a period travelling and working in Africa when she worked as a producer at the Ethiopian Educational Mass Media Centre in Addis Ababa. After returning to London in 1971 she joined the BBC as a Producer/Director and gained a wide range of production experience.

"In 1981 she was recruited by Jeremy Isaacs to join the start-up team of Commissioning Editors at the new Channel 4. Over the next 5 years she commissioned over 150 single and series documentaries. She was then involved in another channel start-up as Director of Programmes for SuperChannel, a collaboration between ITV and BBC to launch a Pan-European satellite channel.

"In 1988 she became Managing Director of Hawkshead, an independent production company specializing in factual programmes and international co-productions, which subsequently became part of the Guardian Media Group and later Endemol. More recently she has been a freelance executive producer and broadcasting consultant.

"She has spent considerable time in non-executive roles with a range of trusts and NGOs, including Broadcasting Support Services, WWF, International Broadcasting Trust, Television Trust for the Environment, One World Online, Independent Production Training Fund, Find Your Feet, Wildscreen Trust and One World Media. She was a communications adviser to the Brundtland Commission on Environment and Development and to Global Forum. Carol chaired a number of international festivals including the Edinburgh TV Festival and Wildscreen, and also completed the Senior Executive Programme at the London Business School." [1]
