Paula Vaccaro, an award-winning producer and screenwriter, takes us on her journey from growing up in Argentina to establishing her own production company in the UK (Pinball London).

Although an Italian family migrating to Argentina is not unusual, the story behind how Paula's family came to be there is a very interesting one.

Paula's work ethic meant that by the time she was in her mid-twenties, she had already become a successful journalist and broadcaster.

Longing to spread her wings, we learn what it was that brought Paula to Europe and the lessons she learnt along the way.

"Things became super different. Going out for lunches and dinners became a luxury. I would never forget waiting for public transport and having my feet soaking wet and being cold - extremely cold - like I've never imagined one could be. So, London was a full-on reckoning. And yet, I fell madly in love with the place."

We hear what it takes to be successful in the media industry and what advice Paula has for anyone wishing to set-up their own production company.
