Bushra Siddiq is a producer, director and development producer, who has spent more than a decade working on some of the UK’s flagship current affairs programmes.

Bushra says she wants to tell diverse stories that are brave, bold and inspiring. 

Among her credits are films for the BBC’s Panorama programme, Channel 4’s Dispatches and Cutting Edge series and ITV’s Tonight show. One film she produced for Dispatches, entitled Racist Britain (2016), was nominated in the Best Investigation category at the Asian Media Awards 2017. Other producer and assistant producer highlights include White Fright: Divided Britain (2018); Contaminated Blood – The Search for the Truth (2017), both for Panorama; Britain’s Hardest Workers: Inside the Low Wage Economy (2016), a five-part series for BBC Two; and Unseen Gaza (2009), for Dispatches.

Over the last 18 months, Bushra has worked with several independent production companies to strengthen their premium factual slates and secure documentary commissions for both UK and US networks. Most recently, she has been working in the BBC’s The Documentary Unit as a development producer, where she has been developing a specialist factual history series, a sports documentary and several true crime feature documentaries and series.
