Daniel Bogado is a multi award-winning producer and director of documentaries, focusing on human rights issues in the developing world. He’s also the former series editor of Unreported World, Channel 4’s critically-acclaimed series and Britain’s longest running foreign affairs strand.
In 2012, Daniel gained access inside the conflict zone of the Nuba mountains in South Sudan and secured evidence which exposed a secret campaign by the Sudanese government to kill thousands of civilians through aerial bombardment and forced starvation. The resulting film “Terror in Sudan” won the prestigious Rory Peck award.
In 2014, he shot the documentary “Nigeria’s Hidden War” for Channel 4 and PBS which revealed that in its fight against Boko Haram the government of Nigeria was engaged in a brutal campaign of retaliatory and indiscriminate violence towards civilians – abuses which may constitute war crimes. The documentary won an Emmy for Best Investigative Journalism.
The same year, he produced and directed “15 and Learning to Speak“, a heartwarming story about a deaf teenager in Uganda who is taught sign language for the first time in his life. A five minute clip from the film immediately went viral on youtube and facebook, gaining over 35 million views. The story was picked up by major media outlets all over the world.
