Roger Harrabin is the BBC’s Environment Analyst. He is recognised as one of the world’s leading journalists and broadcasters on the environment and energy. An influential figure in the British media, he has won many awards for broadcasting on issues related to sustainable development.
Roger Harrabin started his career at the Coventry Evening Telegraph, and as a freelance journalist on Fleet Street before moving to the BBC over 2 decades ago. He has since reported on programmes such as Panorama, Newsnight, Assignment, The Ten O’Clock News, BBC World and The World at One.
Many of today’s environment/equity themes became issues of public concern following Roger’s reports on Radio 4’s “Today” programme. They include climate change, biodiversity, carbon footprints, population, over-fishing, green taxation, road pricing, global inter-connectedness, 3rd World debt, and many more. He was years ahead of the pack in showing how the environment links to energy, transport, farming, government aid, foreign policy, planning… even obesity.
His interests cover policy on the environment, transport, energy, development, public health and economics, particularly where these areas overlap.
Roger has travelled extensively and has undertaken many acclaimed interviews on environmental issues with many key figures including Ban Ki Moon, President Barroso, Tony Blair, John Kerry and Al Gore.
He is a graduate of St Catharine’s College Cambridge, and has spent academic sabbaticals at Green College Oxford and Wolfson College Cambridge, where he is an Associate Press Fellow. He co-directs the Cambridge Environment and Media Programme, which brings together senior journalists and outside experts to discuss media coverage of long-term sustainable development issues.
He is an expert moderator with a very broad knowledge, and he is adept at drawing out the best in panel discussions.
Roger Harrabin is noted for his informal style and light touch as well as his insight and rigorous intellect.
