Journalist, investigative reporter, and presenter Raphael Rowe’s unique life story has truly captured the hearts of the British public.
Having spent 12 years in a maximum security prison for crimes he did not commit, Raphael’s career as a journalist and reporter began a year after his release.
Initially beginning in radio, he moved over to television, focusing on themes of crime, terrorism, war, and justice.
He has reported for BBC One’s 6 O’Clock News, produced hard-hitting documentaries for BBC Two and Three, and became a correspondent for Panorama—the first ex-prisoner and person of colour to have achieved this. Raphael documented his fascinating life story in his 2020 autobiography Notorious.
Raphael currently hosts Netflix series Inside the World’s Toughest Prisons, Netflix’s 2nd most watched factual programme, the award-winning podcast The Catch, and his own podcast Second Chance.
