Leo Hornak

BBC World Service producer, London

I'm The World’s BBC producer in London. I joined in January 2013, having previously worked as a producer at BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme and BBC 2’s Newsnight.

I also make radio documentaries for the BBC, covering everything from suicides in India and music in Ghana to pro-life Christianity in Britain.

I occasionally venture into print- in the past  The Sunday Times, the Independent and Timeout Mumbai have been kind enough to accept my scribblings.

My work has won prizes at the One World Media Awards, and the New York Festivals.

I'm also a founder of In The Dark- a non-profit devoted to screening strange and wonderful pieces of radio in strange and wonderful venues.
