“My work has focused on news-making interviews and impactful reporting, including exclusive access to China’s world-first Covid-19 vaccine rollout, the siege of a Hong Kong university, a tortuous custody battle over the children of a murdered British man. I’m just as comfortable deploying with very little notice, leading small teams, or working on a daily basis as part of a bigger group effort. I’ve reported from mainland China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Liberia, Nigeria, Israel, the US and various European countries, including international summit meetings, party conferences, prime ministerial and presidential visits.”

Robin Brant Zhengzhou

In July 2021,Robin was a target of an incident which occurred in Zhengzhou. This was after a crowd of people allegedly “jostled” Mathias Boelinger, a German TV reporter on assignment for Deutsche Welle, and Alice Su, a reporter for the Los Angeles Times, near a flooded underground market. They had mistaken Boelinger for Brant.

The crowd “grabbed Boelinger’s camera and clothes and briefly prevented both outlets from leaving the site.

Describing the incident on Twitter, Boelinger said he was pushed and yelled at for “smearing China”, and that it became apparent the crowd believed he was Brant.

“What I did not know at the time was that a manhunt was on after [Brant],” Boelinger wrote. “There is a vicious campaign against the BBC News in nationalistic circles and state media.”

Various reports from inside China and Hong Kong suggested Brant was targeted due to a controversial report that aired earlier, in which he questioned government policies after almost a year’s worth of rain dropped around Zhengzhou in three days, overwhelming streets and subway tunnels leading to a number of people dying on a train carriage.

“We don’t know why they were left so vulnerable,” Brant said in the report, adding that Beijing had warned other local governments to examine their own weather preparedness and metro regulations.

Chinese media organizations, which are heavily policed by the authorities, were ordered to only report “authoritative information” about casualties and property damage to do with the flooding, according to the China Digital Times.

They were also reportedly instructed not to “take an exaggeratedly sorrowful tone or hype or draw connections to past events” without permission, the website said.
