Dale McEwan, BA (Hons) Journalism Studies, 2009
Dale’s career in journalism began at Stirling where he was editor of Brig, and since graduating with a first, followed by a Masters at City University, London, he has gone on to pursue a successful career in bold investigative journalism. His documentary, Stolen Vision, exposed the devastating impact of counterfeit medicine in Kurdistan and he spent over two years working in the region while investigating the issue in the face of heavy intimidation. The film was awarded 4 stars by UK Film Review who described it as “a wonderfully informative piece of investigative journalism”. Dale’s passion for public service journalism shines through in his recent work on the exploitation of student journalists and his involvement in the documentary Cows, Cash and Cover-Ups, an expose of the vCJD scandal. His work has featured in a variety of publications including Private Eye, The Lawyer, The Press & Journal and Gay Times.
