BBC Newsnight tribute to Liz MacKean

I’ve been away, so only just caught up on the tragic news that legendary journalist Liz MacKean passed away last week having suffered a stroke.

Her investigation into Jimmy Saville, from within the BBC, shot her to superstardom. However, she had done years of amazing work prior to that, including in Northern Ireland.  The tribute by her BBC colleagues is essential viewing.

In our current post-truth age, we need more Liz MacKeans.
