Michael decided he wanted to be a journalist from an early age and after graduating from Glasgow University, he was hired as a trainee reporter by Radio Nan Gaidheal, the BBC’s Gaidhlig language service.
From Radio Nan Gaidheal, he moved to Eorpa, a weekly TV current affairs programme focusing on European issues.

He has always been interested (obsessed) in all things American, and the two-and-a-half years he spent working there were fantastic, covering such stories as the Iraq war, the Columbia shuttle crash, the Michael Jackson trial and the showbiz extravaganza that was the 2004 Presidential election.
Since returning to London, Buchanan has covered some of the biggest stories including Hurricane Katrina, the conflict in Lebanon and the Ipswich killings.
