Editor, Panorama

Biography

I went to school in Twickenham in West London – at Orleans Park school, then Richmond upon Thames College. I studied politics at Cambridge University and then did an MA in public administration at Columbia University, in New York.

My first job was at a think tank in London, doing political research, and then I decided to move into journalism. I started as an intern at ITN, and then became a producer at Channel 4 News. I stayed there for 7 years – I become a programme editor and then the head of news in the UK. I then moved to the BBC – first as the Deputy Editor of Newsnight, and now as the Editor of Panorama. Recent highlights on Panorama include programmes on off shore tax avoidance, the Salisbury nerve agent attack and various undercover programmes.

I have three young children.
