BAFTA winner and two-time Emmy nominee SUSANNA WHITE (Directed by) was the lead director of HBO's Generation Kill, the seven-part miniseries about the 1st Reconnaissance Marines whose unit was part of the first wave of the American military assault on Baghdad. The series was nominated for 11 Emmy Awards including Best Director. In 2005, she won widespread praise for her six episodes of the BBC drama series Bleak House, which was based on Charles Dickens' novel. The series won a host of international broadcast awards including BAFTA and Royal Television Society (RTS) awards for Best Drama Serial. From this success, White went on to direct another highly regarded drama series for the BBC, Jane Eyre, which earned her an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Directing for a Miniseries, Movie or a Dramatic Special.

White began her career in documentaries and made several for the BBC, as well as Rocket Men and Volvo City for Channel 4. In 1996, she made The Museum, depicting a tempestuous year in the life of London's Victoria and Albert Museum. In 1997, she turned to drama with Bicycle Thieves for Channel 4, based on Whitbread Prize-winning writer Blake Morrison's short story, the first of several collaborations with him. She returned to the documentary form in 2000 to pay tribute to English poet W.H. Auden in Tell Me the Truth About Love, which received an Emmy nomination.

White then directed dramatic content including episodes in several series of Channel 4's Teachers, which gained BAFTA and RTS nominations, and Love Again, starring Hugh Bonneville, Dame Eileen Atkins and Tara Fitzgerald, a telefilm about another much beloved modern-day English poet, Philip Larkin (which received RTS and Banff nominations). White has had a long interest in the relationship between mothers and nannies. She has had the help of nannies while raising her twin daughters and has also made a documentary about P. L. Travers, the creator of "Mary Poppins,” and in doing so, was one of the last people to interview her.
