We need good writers to tackle hard topics. Maternity pay, public transport, gap year students, poor housing - things that matter to us all. Muriel Gray tells us why they do, and what needs to be done. You might agree with her or you might not - but you certainly won't be bored. And you'll think about them again when you read these articles from her regular Sunday Herald column.
Muriel Gray began her media career in 1982 with Channel 4's music show The Tube. She went on to present programmes such as Frocks on the Box, a long running fashion series, and Bliss, a teenage music and culture show. She has also presented many Edinburgh Festival programmes, as well as the The Media Show on Channel 4. Muriel began her own production company in 1987, now part of IWC Media. Muriel was the first woman rector of Edinburgh University. She is also a best selling author, with The First Fifty, (a book about the Munro Mountains) and three horror novels. She lives in Glasgow with her husband and three children. After her family, her other passions are mountaineering, snowboarding and growing trees.
