George Rosie

George Rosie has had a prolific media career as an investigative journalist, writer and broadcaster. He wrote a series of features for Scotland on Sunday, called Scotching the Myth, debunked claims that Scots were “subsidy junkies”. The then editor Andrew Jaspan recalled: “Alex Salmond said that was a catalysing moment for both Scotland and the SNP because it gave them some ammunition. That really stirred things up politically. It was a very important and ground-breaking moment.”

He has worked as a television reporter, producer and writer for Channel Four, ITV and STV and has worked as a journalist for a number of newspapers, including The Sunday Times, The Herald, Sunday Herald, The Guardian, The Scotsman, The Independent and was the founding editor of Observer Scotland.

His documentary After Lockerbie won a BAFTA in 1998.

Rosie was also responsible for ‘Dìomhair’ (Secret), produced by independent TV production company, Caledonia TV. Dìomhair revealed how, for more than half a century, successive Conservative and Labour Governments set aside their antipathy to share a common agenda: stopping the march to independence and keeping secret the scale and worth of North Sea Oil and the implications that would have on an independent Scotttish economy.
