Original Journalism

I’ve written thousands of stories in my more than a decade working for BBC News online including dozens of original stories where I got a by-line.

Here are a few examples. There are others that were done for radio and television but don’t have an online record that I can easily share.

The stories cover a variety of subjects from technology and science to history and architecture. One of my favourites was a report on a man called Adolphus Curry who designed half the buildings in Jersey in the 19th century.

Another was a story on a gambling addict who said there wasn’t enough support in the island for people like him and the betting shops don’t do anything at all.
