Why Truth Matters

Vaughan Smith,award-winning documentary filmmaker and news pioneer who founded Frontline Club, talks about his passion for good journalism.

Vaughan Smith came out of the army to become one of the British mavericks who changed the face of war reporting. Shot twice, eight of his colleagues killed, this unstoppable cameraman with 18 news awards to his name discusses his passion for truth and high quality journalism, the mission of the Frontline Club he founded in 2003.
An independent cameraman and video news journalist in the 1990s, he covered conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, Bosnia, Chechnya and Kosovo. His film, The Valley, about the Kosovo War remains the most acclaimed documentary ever shown on Channel 4 Television. In 2007, Vaughan was the joint winner of a Guardian Media Innovation Award for his independent blog from Southern Afghanistan. His latest film, Blood & Dust, is a documentary about US Army Medical evacuation helicopters filmed in Afghanistan in November 2010
