David Alan Barker (Born 18/04/77) is an English documentary filmmaker, journalist and broadcaster.
Barker is best known for his documentary series covering topics such as the Iraq War and the Syrian civil war for the British Broadcasting Corporation.
David travelled to Chernarus in the summer of 2017 alongside cameraman and long-time collaborator Greg Stamp to produce a documentary for the BBC that would cover the escalating border crisis developing between the Chernarussian and Russian armed forces.
However, due to the outbreak of an unknown pathogen that caused unprecedented chaos in the towns and cities of Chernarus the project was redirected to instead cover the extraordinary humanitarian and medical crisis that was unfolding in the region.
David and Greg remained in Chernarus while the majority of the populace fled the country, to record the aid efforts of the NATO forces and to film first-hand the devastation that has been inflicted upon the Chernarussian people.
Now with the borders closed and the power grid shut down, David finds himself trapped in an unfamiliar country, a victim of the same crisis that he sought to document. He continues to collect the stories of the survivors he meets, hoping one day to make it back home and show the world the horrors of Chernarus.
