Benzie retired in 1964 and died in St Leonards in 1988.
Benzie played a key role in October 1957 in the launch of Today on BBC Radio 4, which she named. She edited the programme and was its first senior producer. She took it from a programme for “people on the move” to the important step of having its own named presenter. Quigley and Benzie worked together on the programme and complemented each other’s careers. They worked in the same BBC departments, had the same alma mater and witnessed each other’s marriages.
In the 1940s, Benzie produced Donald Winnicott’s series “The Ordinary Devoted Mother and Her Baby”. Benzie and Janet Quigley “worked with Winnicott to improve his broadcasting style” and shaped the content of the programmes.
In 1937 she married a BBC producer, Royston Morley. They had one child, a daughter. She had to leave the BBC because of a rule against women being married to another of their employees. Another source says that she opted to leave and her resignation meal was attended by Lord Reith.
By 1933, Benzie was head of the foreign affairs department. She oversaw relationships with broadcasters worldwide, including for significant events such as the 1936 Olympic Games and for the Coronation of George VI and Elizabeth.
In 1932, Atkinson resigned and Benzie was given his role. Her salary increased to £500 a year but this was much less that her former boss had been paid. Benzie’s career continued and her salary was increased by £100 every year with a ceiling set at £1,250 per year.
Benzie became a secretary at the BBC in 1927, just two years after it first had de facto national coverage in Britain. During the World War I, her father, Lt. Colonel Robert Marr Benzie, served in the same army division as John Reith who would become the managing director of the BBC, and had written to Reith asking for a position for his daughter. Isa Benzie was paid £150 per year as assistant to the head of the Foreign Liaison department, Major CF Atkinson. Benzie gathered material for talks given by Vernon Bartlett on his programme The Way of the World.
