Behind Closed Doors was the first television programme I ever worked on in my career. I remember a colleague telling me later on that he did not quite expect me to last, since I looked like I was from the strawberry generation and my predecessors had all quit after a few months.
At the time, I had a demanding taskmaster who taught me the very valuable skill of doing research, although I couldn’t see it at the time. I’ll always be grateful to her for what she taught me, because it was only years later that I realised how important that skill was (and how few people have it). She’s passed on, and I hope she’s in a better place now.
