Caro­line Cour­tauld is a writer, pub­lished pho­tog­ra­pher, and doc­u­men­tary film pro­ducer and re­searcher. Her publi­ca­tions in­clude books on Burma, Hong Kong and China. From 1992 to 1997 she worked with Jonathan Dim­bleby and Fran­cis Ger­ard on a BBC doc­u­men­tary pro­ject The Last

Gover­nor about Hong Kong in the pe­riod up to its trans­fer of sovereignt­y to China. For her latest doc­u­men­tary Build­ing China

Mod­ern she was Co- Ex­ec­u­tive Pro­ducer. It was broad­cast as part of Amer­i­can Mas­ters Se­ries (PBS) and re­ceived wide ac­claim.

Cour­tauld’s in­volve­ment in a tele­vi­sion doc­u­men­tary on the history of Hong Kong led to another book, The Hong

Kong Story, which was pub­lished by Ox­ford Univer­sity Press. The highly praised book The For­bid­den

City–The Great Within, which Cour­tauld co-au­thored with May Holdsworth, was a com­pan­ion book to a lav­ish dra­ma­tized doc­u­men­tary of the same name, a history of the Im­pe­rial Palace in Bei­jing. This film was pre­miered on the Dis­cov­ery Chan­nel and shown world­wide. In the UK the book is pub­lished by Frances Lin­coln, WW Nor­ton in the USA and The For­eign Lan­guage Press is China.

The re­lease of Aung San Suu Kyi from house ar­rest in Novem­ber 2010 has led to her re­turn to Burma (Myan­mar) and sev­eral projects in­clud­ing Myan­mar: Burma in

Style (Odyssey and WW Nor­ton) which was pub­lished in the au­tumn of 2012. Her latest book The Ir­rawaddy; Burma’s Kingly Stream will be pub­lished in the au­tumn of 2014.
