Janice Hadlow is Controller of BBC Two, and took up her position on 10 November 2008. Janice had been the Controller of BBC Four since July 2004 and during this time BBC Four grew significantly in reach and share. The channel's achievements have been recognised with awards for Non-terrestrial Channel of the Year (Broadcast 2008, MGEITF 2006). During Janice's tenure, BBC Four created high-profile themed seasons which have transformed the impact of factual. In 2007 Janice was invited to be the Murdoch Visiting Professor of Media at the University of Oxford. In the same year she took a short sabbatical from BBC Four to write a book, The Strangest Family, about George III and his children. Before BBC Four, Janice was Head of Specialist Factual at Channel 4, where she commissioned highly successful and award-winning programmes, including David Starkey's Six Wives and Elizabeth, and The 1940s House.
