We have also written numerous articles for the Independent newspaper. A selection will follow.

In 1995, Peter wrote a profile of the lawyer Clive Stafford Smith, having made several visits to Death Row prisoners with him and worked on a sequel to the remarkable tv documentary Fourteen Days in May, produced by Paul Hamann. For the sequel, The Journey, Peter travelled to Mississippi ahead of the film crew to research whether Edward Johnson had been wrongly convicted and executed, as depicted in Fourteen Days in May. Peter came to know Clive well during those assignments, and has stayed in touch with him during his vital role at the charity Reprieve, which has campaigned for the release of Guantanamo prisoners, as well as contining its work for death row prisoners.
