The Informer is an anthology of documentaries produced by the Centre for Investigative Reporting and the BBC World Service.
The series tells the stories of a group of investigative journalists who investigate government, business and the media.
It follows the journey of one journalist from the brink of suicide to uncovering a secret network of child traffickers.
In its first episode, the film follows the story of the young journalists Michael Gove and Tim Crouch, who are set to launch a new investigative series on a secret government inquiry into the deaths of six boys in the town of St Albans, West Yorkshire.
Michael Gove is a former Tory MP and MP for St Albens.
He was sacked by his party after a public outcry about his handling of the inquiry into child abuse in a local authority care home in the early 1980s.
Tim Crouch is an investigative journalist.
He has a PhD in history from the University of Bristol and has written extensively about the 1980s child abuse inquiry.
I have spent the last 10 years with Michael Gave and Tim as a team investigating the child abuse scandal at St Albanes town hall, which saw thousands of boys being abused by paedophile priests.
Michael has published the most detailed investigation of this scandal and has won a number of awards for his reporting.
This was the first documentary series to be funded by the BBC and the World Service, which is now a global news channel, to feature stories from independent journalists.
Its a fascinating story and one that should be told again and again.
It will be released in 2017.
A new film, “The Guardian” (directed by Alexei Ulyukayev), was commissioned to cover the story.
