Nick Ross is one of Britain’s most versatile and experienced broadcasters.
His career spanned news and factual broadcasting, current affairs, live studio debates, phone-ins, crime, talk shows, features, documentaries, quizzes, politics, business and science. His shows have including many of the top UK TV and radio series including World at One, A Week in Politics, live coverage of parliament and elections, and dozens of high-ratings documentaries. He launched breakfast TV and Watchdog, but is still best-known for the BBC top-rated show Crimewatch which he left in July 2007, after over 23 years, making him perhaps the longest-serving presenter of any peak-time TV series. He has awards for Radio Broadcaster of the Year, best current affairs show, best documentary, and his programmes have often been nominated or shortlisted by the Royal Television Society and others.
His expertise on crime led to a major book: CRIME: how to solve it and why so much of what we’re told is wrong. Some of its themes were aired in The Truth About Crime, a landmark series on BBC One (“Fascinating, sane, insightful and compellingly argued” -The Times).
Examples of recent journalism on this site include press articles as well as Fallout: The Legacy of Chernobyl on BBC Radio 4 (broadcast on the 25th anniversary of the nuclear disaster and challenging myths about the extent of radiation-related deaths and injuries) and an investigation into the loss of an Air France airliner in mid-Atlantic (see America Live with Megyn Kelly).
