Grainne Harrington

I’m a bilingual (English-French) multi-media journalist with extensive field production and reporting experience in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. I'm currently based in Kampala, Uganda, working as a video journalist and radio/print reporter. As a BBC field producer, I’ve worked in high-risk environments such as Ebola zones in West Africa, and the 2014 Gaza war, where the BBC’s coverage was nominated for BAFTA and Royal Television Society Awards. I’ve also reported for the BBC from Eastern DRC and worked as the in-house reporter for the BBC World Service. I film on a Canon XF205 and edit on FCPX.
