More new faces

Alison Walsh has joined the BBC as Disability Lead, from Channel 4, where she worked from 1996 until April this year. She's been part of initiatives to bring comedy drama, ("The Cast Offs"), reality shows ("The Undateables") and the Paralympics to the network, as well as "normalising disability" through encouraging participation in gameshows and series like "Location, Location".

Like new HR diversity boss, Tunde, she has a degree in Zoology, acquired from Somerville, Oxford. She was a member of the Women's Boat Club, but developed rheumatoid arthritis in her second year.

Before joining Channel 4, she was a freelance writer specialising in disability and travel, for both the BBC Holiday series and Rough Guides.
