Investigative Journalism and Digital Technology

Iain Overton, editor of the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, looks at how digital media has impacted the field of investigative journalism.

He talks about how digital technology can aid quality investigations – both in terms of helping journalists find stories as well as getting those stories heard. His talk is illustrated with the Bureau’s direct experience in conducting investigations such as the Wikileak’s Iraq War Logs and their work with the FT on EU structural funds.
