David Shukman
David Shukman, World Affairs correspondent for BBC News, has covered major international stories for the past 15 years.

His current role is to provide regular studio analysis of the Iraq crisis and the US-led war against terrorism for the BBC's flagship Six and Ten O'clock bulletins.


Past assignments range from reporting from East Berlin during the fall of the wall to securing the first filming of Soviet nuclear weapons to gaining rare access to the war in Angola.

David has reported on the conflicts in Northern Ireland, the Gulf, Bosnia, Sri Lanka, Israel/Palestine and East Timor. In the past year, David has reported on the plight of war victims in Sierra Leone, the famine in Tajikistan and the Pentagon's future plans to fight al-Qaeda.

His reports were cited as part of the RTS (Royal Television Society) Award to BBC News for its coverage of the Kosovo conflict in 1999.

David is the author of two books: All Necessary Means: Inside the Gulf War was published by BBC Books in 1991; and The Sorcerer's Challenge: Fears and hopes for the weapons of the next millennium which was published by Hodder in 1995, with an American edition, Tomorrow's War, published in 1996 by Harcourt Brace.

David is a regular speaker on media issues at conferences and seminars. He has written for national newspapers and magazines, including regular book reviews for the Daily Mail.
