Sue Nelson


Sue Nelson is a science presenter, writer and a former BBC science and environment correspondent for Breakfast and the One O’clock News. An award-winning journalist and broadcaster – and an experienced live performer for Radio 5 Live and News 24 – her reports have appeared on all the BBC’s national TV and radio news bulletins including Today and The Ten O’clock News.

She is a highly experienced live performer who has interviewed scientists, authors, artists and astronauts – including riding a moon buggy on the streets of London with Captain Eugene Cernan, the last man to walk on the Moon, and hour-long science discussions on stage with Brian Cox, Robert Winston and Alec Jeffreys.

Recent documentaries Sue has produced include a history of women in space, Women with the Right Stuff (BBC World Service), and The Online Identity Crisis (Radio 4) on the disturbing ways in which social media and the Internet is shaping our identity.

She spent several years working alongside the Rosetta mission space scientists making short films about their audacious attempt to land on a comet and how it has changed our understanding of cometary science. Sue is currently making short films on the ExoMars mission as well as BepiColombo, which is on its way to Mercury.

Sue is also a writer of short stories, radio drama and screenplays. One of her screenplays, Little Devils, led to the resulting short film being shown in 19 cities across 6 countries during the International Festival of Cinema and Technology. As a radio presenter, one of her series – Citizen Science – prompted an somewhat unexpected call from the Palace to say how much Royalty had enjoyed the programme!
