Two weeks into the new career he had a baptism of fire covering the fall of the Berlin Wall as part of the team making the first documentary from the “wall-free” Communist East.
Since September 11th 2001 he has been the Special Correspondent for BBC London News where he says his Ph.D. in International Relations is being put to good use in the world’s most ethnically diverse city.
AS SEEN IN:
"Love Means Nothing In Tennis"
At the beginning of the episode, the UCOS team watched a news report by Barling on the death of a young tennis phenom.
This is the official picture of Barling for the BBC. I'll swap it out when I can find a picture of him from the episode.
