With fierce competition between news channels, sound bite reporting and the growth of AI, thorough investigative journalism has never been more important. We talk to two journalists whose dogged work revealed astonishing scandals that might otherwise have never been revealed. As the Investigations Producer for BBC Newsnight, Hannah Barnes’ coverage of the care available to young people experiencing gender-related distress helped precipitate a massive NHS enquiry. Her book Time to Think: The Inside Story of the Collapse of the Tavistock’s Gender Service for Children, is a Sunday Times Bestseller. Sam Peters spearheaded the Mail On Sunday’s investigation into the growing evidence of a connection linking sports-related concussions to premature deaths and dementia. His book, Concussed: Sport’s Uncomfortable Truth, was shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year 2023.
