However, what happens in other genres, such as Specialist Factual or Documentaries? Our panel, who hold some of the most influential jobs in British Broadcast will debate why there are too few, or perhaps, too many women in front of the screens and ask if race and age also play a part in the genders. Are female experts outnumbered?
