SPECIAL Q&A with Dr Caroline Lucas (Leader of the Green Party) and Lizzie Gillet (producer)


Caroline Lucas was first elected to the European Parliament as one of the Green Party’s first MEPs in June 1999 to represent the South East of England region, and re-elected with an increased vote share in 2004.

Caroline is a member of  the International Trade Committee and the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety Committee. She also sits on the Parliament’s Temporary Climate Change Committee.

She serves as Vice President of the Animal Welfare, Health and Consumer and Globlisation cross-party Intergroups, as Co-President of the Peace Initiatives Intergroup and is a member of the Parliament’s Permanent Delegation to Palestine.


Producer Lizzie Gillett came to London from New Zealand in 2001, where she had been working as a TV news reporter and programme maker. Lizzie planned to live the dream, directing Panorama for the BBC or similar, but somehow wound up working part-time for Franny at Spanner Films instead, and by the end of 2004 Lizzie was on board the Stupid beast as Co-Producer. Over the past four and a half years her roles as manager of the entire 100-strong production crew and constant companion to Franny throughout the filming trip to the four corners of the earth have given Lizzie a unique and intimate inside perspective on the Stupid story as it unfolded.
