Going undercover




Panel discussion on undercover investigative journalism.

David Henshaw is the founder and managing director of Hardcash Productions and he has produced more than 50 films, many using undercover reporting, and won a range of awards - including five Emmys, four RTS Journalism awards, two Peabodys, a Grierson, and a Bafta.  Hardcash have a reputation for tackling controversial issues and as a result their films have often set the news agenda and changed government policy.

Gesbeen Mohammad graduated from City’s MA Investigations course in 2015. She is now co-producing at Hardcash Productions and has gone undercover herself for several Channel 4 documentaries.

Job Rabkin is Commissioning Editor for Investigations, Channel 4 News, which is the team behind the ‘Data Democracy and Dirty Tricks’ series that included an undercover investigation on Cambridge Analytica and election campaigns across the world. Bosses were filmed talking about using bribes, ex-spies, fake IDs and sex workers.

Josh Reynolds is a producer/director of undercover documentaries, most recently working on one for BBC3. Previously he was at BBC Panorama for four years and was assistant producer on the Bafta-winning documentary “Britain’s Immigration Secrets”.  He also worked on the  May 2018 Panorama “Police Under Pressure” in which a reporter spent three-months embedded in police forces, revealing a dangerous lack of resources.
