I am a Spanish producer/director based in London. My work has been published on BBC World TV, BBC Stories, BBC Trending, BBC News Online, El País newspaper, Elpaís.com and other outlets in Europe and Latin America. I am passionate about human stories that deal with social issues and human rights. I produce, write, film, and edit my own pieces, both in English and Spanish.
In the heart of the Appalachian Mountains in Virginia, hundreds of people gather at dawn at a rural airport's parking lot, to be the first in the queue for free medical and dental attention at the Remote Area Medical (RAM) pop up clinic. They are people without insurance who in many cases have driven for hours just to relieve an unbearable toothache or heal infections that might've been there for years. They're greeted by hundreds of volunteers, doctors, dentists and even a Syrian refugee ready to help them.
South Africa holds its general election on 8 May and young people in the country are using social media to transform its politics. BBC Trending's been to Johannesburg to meet Sankara - a stuanch supporter of the ANC (African National Congress) and Thapi, a representative of the leftist EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters) party. The new wave of activism has been given a boost by campus movements against rising tuition fees and alleged bias in education. So we brought Sankara and Thapi to meet on the grounds of Wits University to debate the future path of South Africa.
Panorama investigates a global network of neo-Nazis whose aim is to destroy society and discovers that it is recruiting in the UK. Last year, a 16-year-old boy from Durham became the youngest person ever convicted of planning a terrorist attack in the UK, prompting reporter Daniel De Simone to delve deeper into this shadowy world. Police say right-wing extremism is the fastest-growing terrorist threat in the UK and that the coronavirus pandemic may be leaving young people vulnerable to radicalisation. As Daniel investigates the Durham case, he notices certain names cropping up again and again. Working with investigative journalist Ali Winston in the US, he tracks down some of the movement's most influential figures and reveals how the network operates across the globe.
On average in 2016, there were two acid attacks a day. 2017 is now projected to be the year with the highest number of attacks ever recorded in the UK. Over the past few years there has been a change in the way acid has been used. No longer just associated with shame or honour attacks, acid is now a weapon used by moped thieves as well as a means of settling gang disputes. We follow four separate acid attack victims who highlight this growing trend.
At the end of 2019 it was estimated that there were more than 2.5 billion active gamers around the world, yet still, there is a lot of confusion and debate around the effect video games have on our mental health and wellbeing. Can they make us addicted? Are they a conduit to violent behaviour? Are these even the right questions to ask? With a pandemic in full swing, and more people than ever spending their lives online, we believe there is a better question to be asked: How do video games make us feel? While some still warn of their risks, some argue video games can, and have been, helpful for people’s wellbeing. We meet Abi, from Weston-Super-Mare, a gamer and cosplayer whose love for a particular game, ‘The Last of Us’, helped her become more in-tune with her own emotions, feelings and identity. Joe, an old school gamer from Glasgow, told us about how gaming helped him in coming to terms with his depression; and Elissa, from London, details how ‘Animal Crossing’ made the lockdown much easier for her and her friends at uni, providing the connection and sense of community they were missing. Video games are still under the scrutiny, and while the science is still not there in terms of understanding how they can affect us, many argue that the positive sides of it outdo the negative. Agency, connection, self-awareness… can video games help us feel better?
