Ali Tash was employed as a fixer and researcher by Daniel Tetlow between July and August 2008, as part of BBC’s alternative Olympic coverage. This involved producing feature pieces and reporting live on a journey from the far western border of China in Xinjiang across to Lanzhou, Chengdu, down to Kunming and back up to Beijing.
Mr. Tash was highly knowledgeable about the area, understanding the sensitivities of reporting in Xinjiang with excellent contacts with the authorities and with travel and tourism representatives across the province. He was hugely generous with his time and resources and I would be happy to recommend him highly for future employment.
