Helen Mark
Now presenting Open Country, Helenís broadcasting career began with a move to Northern Ireland in 1981. After graduating from the Royal Scottish Academy in Glasgow and teaching in Edinburgh, she left her native Scotland to live in Ulster. BBC Radio Foyle were launching their morning news and current affairs schedule and Helen anchored Foyle Today for about five years.

In between times she was a quiz mistress on Radio Ulsterís Put away your Books and made several documentary series including The Ulster Scots.

The move into the outdoors came gradually with a long running television gardening programme called Greenfingers and the natural history series Wildtracks for Radio Ulster. Then in 1997 she began reporting for Countryfile and presenting Farming Today.

From there it was out into the open landscape and travels across the British Isles with Open Country. She has also presented TV programmes such as The Family Show and Health Check in Northern Ireland. Helen is married with two teenage sons.
