“I am very proud of the documentaries which I made with Kate Dixon for the BBC. Gordon’s Women made a splash with the criticisms made of the Labour Prime Minister by some of his colleagues as well as the admission by one that he flirted with her.

I really appreciated Kate’s persistence and journalism in that project as well as our more recent programme ‘New Wave at Westminster’ about the 2015 intake. This was a very fast turnaround but Kate managed to find fascinating characters for us to follow.”

Shaun Ley, BBC Radio 4, World at One Presenter

“Politicians are instinctively wary of journalists. As she demonstrated on Labour Saving Devices, Kate Dixon has a knack for putting people at ease, getting them to talk candidly. She is also an organised and self-disciplined programme maker, working as effectively on her own as she does in a team. Kate Dixon is a producer you can trust.”

Rory Cellan Jones, BBC Technology Correspondent

“Kate is a skillful and experienced producer with a strong background in journalism. She is also great at managing talent and working to challenging deadlines.”
