About the journalist

Jane MacSorley is an award winning producer and investigative journalist. Joining the BBC in 1994, she worked with news and current affairs for over 15 years making a range of programmes from undercover in one of Britain’s top private prisons to exposing serious failings in the UK’s childcare industry. In 2002, Jane uncovered the story of the suspicious deaths of the four army recruits at the Deepcut barracks in Surrey making four TV investigations over the years for BBC. In 2017 she produced the Panorama investigation, Cadet Abuse Cover-Up which led to the conviction of a retired naval officer. He was jailed in 2021 for sexually abusing schoolboys over 40 years before.

Jane wrote and presented the Audible Original Death at Deepcut. The launch of the podcast series in June 2021 made national headlines. It unearthed a fifth death of a trainee at the camp that had been kept a secret for 20 years. More recently Jane was the undercover journalist for a BBC N Ireland documentary into a fertility clinic. The Belfast clinic has since closed down and is the focus of an investigation by the Police Service of Northern Ireland.

Very interesting

I'm not one who usually leaves reviews but having recently left a not too complimentary one for previous podcast I feel it is only fair to leave a good one here as it is well deserved. It was very well narrated and the story was fascinating and kept me engaged throughout by keeping the story moving forward with very little repetition. Thankyou.

Don't Bother

I see things through to the end, if you don't start listening you won't have to and you'll be better for it. The story is interesting enough without having to present it in this fashion/narrative. Journalist leaves you frustrated in every audio interaction. A side announcement at the end of the podcast can't even be delivered well. It could have been great, even good but it wasn't. Disappointed audible emailed me about, wish I didn't listen.

Too much content in this vein

This is way too drawn out for my taste. Too many podcasts make a long series out of a short story

Finished it in less than a day

I read about the story of Nicholas Rossi in the news recently & came across the podcast.

Loved it, great journalism & kept me on the edge of my seat. Can’t believe how he thinks he can dupe people with this false identity.

Highly recommend & sad when it finished

An interesting story

I enjoyed this podcast. Easy to listen through in a day if you have the time. I'd heard about this story but had not read up on the details. There were a few surprises. Worth a listen.

Compelling

I was gripped from the start. Excellent journalism and storytelling by Jane and the technical quality of the recordings and mixing made it so easy to listen to.

Binged in one long drive.

A really well told story demonstrating the power of a person expert in deceiving people from believing their instincts.
