BBC

First months

Hockings joined the BBC as a producer in 1999, before being promoted to senior producer in 2000

Reporter

As a reporter, Hockings has covered the September 11 attacks, the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, the 2004 tsunami, the death of Pope John Paul II, the 2005 London bombings, and the capture of Saddam Hussein

Accent

During her earlier presenting days, there were attempts by Hockings' employers "iron out" her vowels, and complaints from viewers who were annoyed at "that young Australian girl reading the news!" Hockings said that "when I started the accent was a huge problem and I was sent to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art for speech lessons They were unsuccessful My accent is part of who I am and I work for an international broadcaster—it's a good reflection of the newsroom, which is very international"
