Raphael Rowe talks about what it's like working at Panorama

Raphael Rowe was born and brought up in south-east London and he joined the BBC in 2001 as a reporter for the radio news programme, Today.

His tone, style and accent was different to that normally heard on the flagship programme and caused an immediate stir amongst the traditional Radio 4 audience.

But Raphael's path to becoming a reporter has been unique and remarkable indeed.
