Biography

Philippa Thomas is one of the BBC's Washington Correspondents, reporting for radio, TV and BBC Online.

Any news in America might fall within Philippa's patch! In the last year, she's covered such Washington stories as negotiations with the big tobacco companies, the political battle with Microsoft, the state visit of Tony Blair, and of course the long-running allegations about the private life of President Clinton.

She covered the Louise Woodward trial in Boston from its opening days to the final appeal. And she's travelled north to Chicago, west to Salt Lake City, and south to Tennessee, Georgia and Texas filming features on science, society, religion: in fact, anything about America that might strike a chord with our audience worldwide.

Before arriving in the States, Philippa was the Political Correspondent for the BBC World Service, covering the Northern Ireland peace process from London, Belfast and Dublin, and following the last years of Conservative government.

Her time at Westminster finished on a note of drama with live coverage of Labour's triumphal victory last May. She hopes to stay in Washington through the next political cycle over there.... perhaps seeing "Primary Colours" come to life as the competing candidates campaign for the White House in the year 2000.
