Hermione Cockburn


Hermione Cockburn is an earth scientist and absolutely passionate about communicating her subject. She has studied landscapes all over the world including Africa and Antarctica and is an associate lecturer with the Open University teaching Environmental Science in Scotland.

She won the BBC Talent ‘Science on Screen’ competition and has since contributed to a whole range of programmes. She became a location reporter for the What The Ancients Did For Us series, highlighting the scientific legacy of ancient civilisations. She joined the team of Rough Science for six high altitude challenges in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

Hermione is a big fan of BBC Radio 4 and has presented Science at 9 features like The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, Shifting Sands and The Gift of a Goat. She presented The Secret Life of a Reservoir for Radio 4 and another titled The Life of Britain for BBC One in Scotland. She also presented hundreds of shows on Teachers TV during the channel’s lifespan. She has presented BBC2 hit series Coast and on our screens in mid 2020.
