For the past eighteen months, he’s been a reporter for People Fixing The World, the solutions program by the BBC World Service. The 23 videos he produced racked up the impressive number of 113,126,263 views — and that only on Facebook. He just moved to the BBC’s business unit where he plans to cover the work of social enterprises through a solutions lens. We spoke to Dougal Shaw about his approach to covering solutions stories, visual storytelling and how solutions journalism has given him a sense of moral purpose.”
