Ben joined Independent Radio News in 1986. He covered major stories from superpower summits to the Hungerford massacre. Two years later he joined BBC TV News and was a Foreign Affairs Correspondent until 1991, reporting the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Gulf War, from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
In 1991 Ben was appointed Moscow Correspondent, where he witnessed the final collapse of Communism and the fall of Mikhail Gorbachev. He was at the Russian Parliament when troops loyal to President Boris Yeltsin stormed it in 1993, and the following year he was in Chechnya for the start of the civil war. His coverage of that conflict won him several international prizes, including the Bayeux War Correspondent of the Year Award and the Golden Nymph Award from the Monte-Carlo Television Festival.
Ben resumed his roving role as a foreign correspondent, based in London in January 1995. He has covered the break-up of Yugoslavia largely, reporting from Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and Kosovo, where his stories helped to secure a number of awards for the BBC, including a BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) award.
Most recently Ben was embedded with British troops in the Iraq War. He wrote about his experiences in a book, The Battle for Iraq, notably how a British soldier saved his life by opening fire on an Iraqi militiaman who was just about to shoot Ben in the back with a rocket-propelled grenade. In 1991 Ben covered the first Gulf War and his account of that, All Necessary Means was also published.
Ben was criticized by viewers in December 2010, for adopting a “highly accusatory” tone during an interview he conducted on BBC News with Jody McIntyre, a political activist with cerebral palsy who had been dragged from his wheelchair by Metropolitan Police officers during a recent student protest march through London.
Ben was interrupted by a passer-by in May 2017 while conducting a live interview on the street in Bradford. The female passer-by walked into shot, looked into the camera and said “Absolutely fantastic”. After looking at the woman, Ben did not ask her to leave, but reached out his arm to move her out of the shot and “pushed the woman away, his hand on her chest”. The BBC said that no further action would be taken as it was “clearly an accident”.
