In this ambitious indie show, host Maeve McClenaghan from the Bureau of Investigative Journalism in London slips behind significant news stories to ask about the actual work of reporting. Anyone interested in how the sausage of media is made will delight in thedetails of doorstep confrontations, stake-outs and social media trawls, as McClenaghan interviews both journalists and their sources. Across five episodes so far, we've heard from a journalist who identified two British terrorists, another who exposed the Pentagon's propaganda efforts in Iraq, and explored a Buzzfeed report on dodgy political donors, among others. At a time when the term "fake news" has lost all meaning, this is a useful reminder of the grinding, dogged work that drags these stories out of the dark. New episodes every week.
