Winner of the Royal Television Society Award for Best Network Documentary for Extraordinary Families  (2005), Jane Treays is one of the foremost documentary directors in British television.  Of her controversial film, Men in the Woods  (2001), the Mirror wrote:  "Acclaimed filmmaker Jane Treays brilliantly draws on personal experience to tell of the effects of indecent exposure on children. Jane was brave to make this film and Channel 4 was bold to screen it".   Over 2,400 calls were received following its broadcast.  Her latest powerful films, Virgin Daughters (2008) and Mum, Heroin and Me (2008), provoked considerable media interest and public debate.
