Peter has a passion for conflict reporting, and again in 2014, made several trips to Iraq where he covered the stunning and deadly advances of the so-called Islamic State. He was based in Baghdad and the northern city of Erbil, as militants cut swathes through Iraq and Syria. Also that year, he spent weeks in eastern Europe as civil war raged between Ukraine and Russia.

He reported from Cairo’s Tahrir Square the night Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was toppled as leader. He was also among the first western reporters to enter Libya for its uprising, which turned into a civil war and resulted in the death of dictator Colonel Moammar Gaddafi.
Peter has been on the ground for many of the world’s most recent tragedies and historic moments. The 2015 earthquake in Nepal, the London riots, the massacre in Norway, the Eurozone crisis, and many European elections. Showing versatility, he’s also covered three Olympic Games, and the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. In 2013 he made several trips to South Africa to report on and present prime-time documentaries on the death of Nelson Mandela and the arrest and court appearances of paralympian Oscar Pistorius.
