Between 1980 and 1990, she worked as a public relations executive for Parlophone Records, most famously working on the Live Aid concert at Wembley in 1985.

During her 15 year career in television, Mariella has impressed audiences with her friendly, intelligent and accessible screen presence.

Mariella's projects run the gamut from current affairs (Panorama, Question Time and Backlash) to movies and the arts. She has interviewed many different celebrities, writers and other artists and has presented a variety of different TV programmes, including one on travel, and has appeared in other TV shows such as the series Have I Got News for You and the sitcom Absolutely Fabulous. She made several guest appearances as herself in the series Coupling including an episode where one of the characters fantasizes about her, then meets her in person.

She presents Open Book and fronted the recent Memory Season on Radio Four. Mariella presented her own series for Artsworld The Book Show. She combines her television and radio career with that of a prolific journalist. Mariella was the film critic for Harpers And Queen and has a weekly dilemma column in The Observer Magazine for whom she also writes major interviews.

Mariella is passionate and knowledgeable about the arts, including film, literature, music and popular culture, as well as politics and current affairs, and over her career has interviewed many famous figures from Paul McCartney to Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Susan Sarandon to Nick Clegg.
