Producer

World Service (Trending)                                                              Sept 2019 – July 2020

 

Trending produces radio documentaries, films and articles that investigate stories surrounding social media.  I produced and presented audio documentaries on deepfakes, Influencers harming nature and Covid-19 fake news. I also filmed and edited digital videos and wrote online articles. During the 2019 General Election I worked with the social media investigation team looking at how social media influence impacted the outcome.

 

In 2020 I produced a video about Poland’s ‘LGBT+ Free Zones’ leading a team of a correspondent and cameraman on location in Poland and a video editor in London. The video has gained over 7 million views on social media and was the most viewed on BBC News Online that week.

 

In 2020 along with the rest of Trending I was nominated for a Webby Award for Best Social News & Politics Series.
