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.
Conflict & Justice
In 2012, Mohammed Morsi was the president of Egypt; in 2013, he was its deposed leader; today he's a convicted criminal, sentenced to 20 years of hard labor. And this verdict is only the first of several to be handed down against him as Muslim Brotherhood members are tried by the new government.
Conflict & Justice
Historian Toby Haggith has been trying to complete a project the British government had started near the end of World War II, but never finished. The government collected footage from the Bergen-Belsen concentration camps to prove what happened there. A rough cut was made into a film, but shelved. Now, however, that rough cut has been turned into a final cut.
Health & Medicine
For centuries, the bones of London's Great Plague victims have lain undisturbed at the Bedlam Burial Ground. Now a new construction project is letting archaeologists uncover their world for a few precious months.
Arts, Culture & Media
The remains of England’s King Richard III have been lying in state this week, awaiting a formal burial. The much-maligned subject of Shakespeare’s play has gotten a rehabilitation since his remains were discovered under a parking lot in 2012, and Britons came out to see him in droves.
