Alexandra Hodgkinson, most recently a Producer and Senior Journalist at Sunday Night, has been appointed as Co Head of Factual of Northern Pictures.
Hodgkinson was previously a Producer and later as Supervising Producer at 60 Minutes and as Series Producer or Executive Producer of factual series such as Bush Doctors, Beyond the Darklands, Pride of Australia and Young Doctors.
Northern Pictures has recently produced Kakadu, Life on the Reef, and Changing Minds.
Managing Director Sue Clothier said, “Alexandra is a first-class television producer and vibrant creative thinker with a substantial track record in factual television. She has spent more than two decades at the coal face of current affairs television and will bring immense energy, intelligence and experience to her role at Northern Pictures.
“Alexandra, along with Karina Holden who moves from the role of Head of Production and Development to Head of Factual, will be looking for opportunities to create factual programs for the international marketplace, as well as Australia. They are a great team. Northern Pictures and its affiliates have offices in Singapore, Beijing, New Zealand and Washington as well as Sydney, which gives us a unique competitive advantage in identifying programming opportunities with broadcasters.”
Hodgkinson said: “It’s a magical opportunity to be part of the Northern Pictures team with its great talent, product and creative ambition. I’m looking forward to making some terrific television – and I couldn’t be happier.”
Northern Pictures is part of David Haslingden’s RACAT, a global network of independent television production companies.
