Hannah’s voice career began as a presenter on BBC Three Counties Radio, first on the Breakfast Show, then Drivetime, at which time she also did her first voiceovers - as the voice of British Gas online training, a job which continued for a decade. Three years as a BBC continuity announcer followed, on BBC One and Two, before leaving to go freelance as a TV/radio presenter and voiceover artist in 2001. But Hannah continues to be an announcer - after 4 years on BBC Four, since 2006, she’s been heard globally by 85 million viewers as the voice of BBC World News.
She’s voiced anything from online infomercials for Clearblue ovulation/pregnancy testing kits, training films for the MOD and NHS Choices, e-learning for Philips and JLL Property, charity films, on-hold messages, and in-flight announcements for Etihad airlines, to national commercial campaigns for clients such as Bravissimo, and 118118. And as well as presenting and narrating 4 factual series for ITV1, she’s also narrated a series about Vicars Wives, and, most recently, Heir we go Again, about the newest royal baby Princess Charlotte, a programme sold around the world.
Hannah works from an ISDN studio at home, but lives within easy reach of London, so can easily attend recording sessions there.
Hannah was professional, helpful and enthusiastic from start to finish. She met every deadline we set and we were very impressed with the quality of work she delivered.
Hannah has been able to deliver the reassuring, professional and authoritative voice that we needed to help the MOD serve military families more effectively. She’s always been flexible in working to tight deadlines, manages to deliver exactly what we need on time, and we always enjoy working with her.
-Stuart Campbell, Director & Film Maker, Bareska Films
Hannah was great to work with - very professional, and very quick despite us throwing a tricky lip-syncing session at her.
-Lucy Watts, Producer, Space City
Hannah exudes calm authority and is blessed with a unique ability to enthuse and excite an audience without trivialising the subject matter.
-Neil Caldicott, Head of Presentation, BBC World
Hannah’s voice has been described as trustworthy, natural, conversational, friendly, calm, authoritative, encouraging, warm, engaging, upbeat.
