Dan Newling

I am an awarding-winning journalist, writer and documentary producer.

A former staff reporter on the Daily Mail, I’ve been freelance for the past eight years. I’ve written for all Britain’s major news publications, but mainly for the Times, Guardian and the Mail titles. I’ve written for news magazines such as the New Statesman and Private Eye and online publishers such as BuzzFeed.

Most of my film work as been for the BBC. I’ve produced short films for the its flagship news programme Newsnight and a longer, hour long ‘special’ documentary for its main investigative strand Panorama. I’m currently producing a stand alone documentary for BBC 2.

All my journalism – whether it be written or broadcast – is investigatory in nature. It is also original and exclusive.


Some more background: in 2010 I won a British Press Awards ‘Scoop of the Year’ nomination for my story exposing England’s then Attorney General as having broken rules she passed into law. In 2015, while living in South Africa, I wrote a critically acclaimed book exposing a miscarriage of justice. In 2015 I was part of the BBC Panorama team which won the Foreign Press Association award for an investigation into corruption at FIFA. In 2018 I was part of the BBC Newsnight team which won a Royal Television Society award for its coverage of the Grenfell Tower disaster.
