Founder of Histamine Intolerance Awareness Campaign
Genny Masterman is an Associate Producer, Researcher and Journalist in the UK with a strong connection to the German language area. She has worked on television documentaries and feature films for clients such as the BBC, CBS 60 Minutes, the Dutch media, the Austrian media and several independent production companies in the UK, US, Canada and Australia. Many of these have been history programmes, one of which is the documentary “KZ” by Bafta award winning director Rex Bloomstein, whose groundbreaking documentary won the Vara Audience Award at the Amnesty International Film Festival. Genny has worked on projects that range from low budget to budgets over a million Pounds. In 2007 she was diagnosed with Histamine Intolerance (HIT) and Fructose Malabsorption in Austria during the production of a BBC documentary. Soon after her return to the UK she became aware that HIT is very low on the public radar in the UK in comparison to some countries on the continent. Genny’s book “What HIT me? Living with Histamine Intolerance” was published in January 2011, and she continues to work on raising awareness in her spare time.
