    TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN,

    “ Creative, diligent and good natured” that is how I describe Basit. He is one of the finest editor’s I have come across in my eleven years of experience as a documentary filmmaker and news correspondent. He has a sound understanding of current affairs and politics and therefore his programs are sensitively edited. He keeps himself well informed about new editing techniques and so his work is always slick and creative. He was an editor for an interview based show, “ FACE OFF” that we produced together for Express News. Since we did not have a producer for the show, Basit was responsible for the content and production of the show. The show was similar to BBC’s ‘Hard Talk’ and Basit was an indispensable member of the “ FACE OFF’ team. We interviewed US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Senator John Kerry, US Ambassador to Pakistan, Cameron Munter and prominent political figures in Pakistan. We also produced three documentaries on the devastation caused by the floods in Pakistan in 2010.

    Baist edited a documentary on how people had suffered living under Taliban controlled areas in Pakistan. The documentary titled, “ The War Within” was widely appreciated by media critics as it highlighted how women were defying the Taliban militants and resisting them in their own way. Basit also edited a show widely viewed program on Pakistani and Indian television, called “ Beyond Borders.” The show was first of its kind on Indian and Pakistani television. It connected Pakistani politicians in Islamabad, Pakistan live via satellite to Indian politicians in Delhi and debated on the volatile relationship between the two countries shortly after the Mumbai terror attacks. The production of this show was very challenging, but Basit was able to skilfully edit out production mishaps and give the program a chic look.

    Basit’s last project with us was a current affairs show, which focuses on the big story of the day. He handled the pressures of breaking news and the fast pace of the program very well and he skilfully edited the shows in minutes. Basit’s departure will be a big loss to our team here in Pakistan, but I strongly recommend him and know that he will be a great addition to any organization that he joins. He is very creative, eager to learn, hardworking and has a lot of potential.

    If required, I shall be happy to provide any more information needed.

    Kind regards,
