KATE HOPKINS
(award-winning sound supervisor, Blue Planet, Blue Planet II)

Session: 2.30pm

Kate Hopkins has worked on some of the most prestigious natural history TV ever: Blue Planet, Wolves at Our Door, Planet Earth (for which she won a Primetime Emmy), Life in the Undergrowth, Great Migrations, Life, Human Planet and Frozen Planet (for which she was awarded a BAFTA in 2012). The top four most-watched TV programmes in the UK in 2017 were the four episodes of Blue Planet II, with around 13-14 million viewers tuning in every episode. The Sunday Times reported the Sir David Attenborough-narrated nature doc was immensely popular globally, attracting around 80m viewers in China alone — a boost so large, it temporarily slowed down the country’s internet. Together with Tim Owens, Hopkins won the 2018 BAFTA Television Craft Award for the series Blue Planet II.
