Roger Harrabin is an Associate Fellow of Green Templeton College. He was the BBC’s Environment Analyst and a senior journalist on environment and energy until July 2022. He has reported on environmental issues since the 1980s, winning multiple awards.
Roger studied English at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge. He began his journalism career in print before joining the BBC, reporting for programmes including Panorama, The World At One, The Ten O’Clock News and Radio 4’s Today.
The role of Environment Analyst was created for him in 2004 to allow Roger to work across all BBC media platforms (television, radio and online) as a journalist and presenter. His reporting often involves risk issues and, during a sabbatical at Green College (now Green Templeton College), he produced a King’s Fund paper called Health in the News which analysed how many people needed to experience a health problem for it to make national news.
