Jonathan Coffey is one of BBC Panorama’s most experienced senior journalists. He has produced and directed more than twenty-five Panoramas on some of the toughest stories and subjects, including Putin’s secret wealth, Russia’s police state, Trump’s sex scandals, Russian oligarchs, and organised crime. In 2016, he was one of the winners of the Investigation of the Year category at the British Journalism Awards for his work on the series of revelations known as the Panama Papers. He has written for The Spectator, Standpoint, and The Wagner Journal. He has also presented several documentaries for BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4 – including an exploration of what it means to be an impartial journalist in today’s polarised world.


Jonathan led the BBC’s investigative effort on the Letby case for Panorama, and produced and directed the documentary ‘Lucy Letby: The Nurse Who Killed’. 3.3 million people watched the film in its first week, making it the highest-rated Panorama of recent years.
