Barney Jones, Editor

Barney Jones worked as Director of Communications for the National Union of Students after graduating from the University of Wales and then moved into broadcasting, working first in local radio.

He joined the BBC in 1984 starting as a TV producer in Norwich, then as a reporter based at the House of Commons.

Barney has worked on Newsnight, the TV news bulletins, Breakfast News and a host of TV news specials.

He organised BBC TV's 'morning-after' coverage of the 1992 General Election.

Barney devised, piloted and produced a new Sunday morning programme starting in January 1993 called "Breakfast with Frost".

Much to his surprise, he continued to edit the programme until Sir David Frost left some 12 years later.

He then recruited Andrew Marr and set up the new Sunday morning show on BBC1.

Barney has produced interviews conducted inside the White House, The Pentagon, 10 and 11 Downing Street, Buckingham Palace, The Kremlin and the Elysee Palace and produced live editions of the programme from Johannesburg, Hong Kong, on board the QE2 and from inside a maximum security prison.

Career highlights include setting up a joint interview with Bill Clinton and Tony Blair, getting Elton John into the studio the morning after he played Candle in the Wind at Princess Diana's funeral, and getting Nelson Mandela dancing in the studio at the end of his interview.

Barney lives in North London in the shadow of the Arsenal stadium and, apart from his family, his main interests are British politics, old houses and rock music.

Libby Jukes, Producer

After graduating from Cambridge, Libby worked briefly as a newspaper reporter, before joining the BBC as a News Trainee.

This gave her a taste of various jobs in radio and television journalism, but she decided her future lay as a producer and chose to specialise in politics.

She worked on a variety of programmes, including coverage of general elections, Budgets and the party conferences, producing everything from studio debates and discussions to phone-ins and film reports.

She then joined the "Breakfast with Frost" Team and enjoyed the programme's famously wide remit, with memorable encounters ranging from President Putin to George Michael and David Beckham.

Libby is now Deputy Editor of "The Andrew Marr Show"

After working as a criminologist and legal academic, Brian joined the BBC in Belfast in 2001 and has been involved in producing a wide variety of current affairs and political programmes.

He went on to become an award-winning reporter with BBC Northern Ireland.

Brian worked for the regional current affairs documentary programme "Spotlight" and was part of the BBC's Network Development Team.

Since 2004 he has been a senior broadcast journalist, producing "Breakfast with Frost" and "The Andrew Marr Show".

Catherine Elgonaid, Researcher/Web Producer

After graduating in English from King's College London, Catherine took a law conversion course.

An exciting stint with the BBC's global newschannel, BBC World, ensured she switched to news and hasn't looked back.

Freelancing on the domestic newschannel and the interview show HARDtalk followed, before she took a job in Radio Current Affairs, working on Radio 4 programming.

She joined the "The Andrew Marr Show" team in June 2010.

Catherine worked on both the May 2010 General Election and the May 2011 Local Elections programmes.
