He has reported from over 70 countries, the majority of which are in the Middle East and the Balkans. He reported from Bosnia-Herzegovina during the Bosnian War, and during the 1999 fighting in Kosovo, he was robbed at gunpoint by bandits. Bowen was photographing the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) withdrawal from Lebanon when his car was hit by IDF tank fire, killing his “fixer” and driver. Bowen and his cameraman were able to flee, but Bowen suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and was forced to work as a studio presenter instead.
He also appeared as a guest host on the satirical panel game Have I Got News for You and presented the BBC’s Son of God, a three-part inquiry into the life of Jesus, in 2001. Moses, a similar documentary about Moses’ life, was also given by him in 2002. He rejected on the opportunity to cover the 2003 invasion of Iraq from Baghdad, a city he knew well. Despite this, Bowen returned to the field in March 2003 as a special correspondent, at which time he covered Pope John Paul II’s death. In April 2009, the BBC Trust’s Editorial Standards Committee released a report on three complaints, one of which was filed by the Committee for Accuracy in the Middle East Reporting in America, brought against two news items involving Bowen. The complaints included 24 allegations of breaching BBC guidelines on accuracy and impartiality of which three were fully or partially upheld.
The BBC Trust made its decision based on pieces about Har Homa in the 1960s, the Six-Day War’s impact on the Middle East, and the war’s aftermath. Jeremy Bowen has spoken out in opposition to the censure, claiming that it is the result of a “campaign group” of “enemies of impartiality.” Furthermore, despite the fact that the information was proven to be inaccurate due to improper sourcing, the committee accepted Bowen’s claim that it was provided by an authoritative source. Bowen was not disciplined after a website article was changed. Bowen became the first British journalist to interview Muammar Gaddafi since the start of the Libyan revolution against him and the government in February 2011.
