Since the age of 8 Ruth has wanted to make Children’s TV and for the last 18 years she’s pretty much done just that, with a smattering of ‘grown-up’ shows thrown in for good measure. She has worked for major broadcasters including BBC, ITV, Channel 4, E4, Five and Syfy (US). Credits include “Horrible Histories: Gory Games”, “Blue Peter”, “Vic Reeves’ Ministry of Curious Stuff”, and “Children in Need”, not forgetting a couple of stints producing her favourite canine Hacker T Dog on CBBC.
Ruth is at her happiest when making Children’s content and in 2017, she won a BAFTA for Sixth Sense series ‘Our Family’. In 2013 she developed and Series Produced CBBC’s first ‘dual screen’ offering – a game show and app called ‘Ludus’. Set in outer-space, it featured a spaceship captained by a real life monkey. Ruth won a BAFTA Cymru award, a Broadcast Digital award and was nominated for a Children’s BAFTA for the project. More importantly, she’s still close friends with the monkey.
