In this first chapter, Professor Brian Winston, himself a former ‘World in Action’ producer, provides a brilliant tour d’horizon of the history of investigative journalism from St Augustine warning of ‘hell for the inquisitive’ in 400 CE to today’s hyper-competitive media landscape and laments: ‘As we witness the disappearance of newspaper investigative teams, it turns out it is not fear of hell-fire curbing curiosity … it’s a lack of cash.’
