Anna Williams is head of news at BBC World News. In this in-depth interview, she reveals the challenges behind delivering news to a global audience of 100 million; broadcasting to strongly-censored countries such as North Korea; balancing fair coverage of the Thai monarchy without landing their in-country correspondents a life sentence; covering Brexit from a truly international (and decidedly non-UK only) perspective; combatting gender inequality at the BBC; how cold-calling CNN kickstarted her career; and explains why she warned her son away from a career in journalism.
