Quicksilver documentaries have won six Emmys, four BAFTAs, four Royal Television Society Awards, three Grierson documentary awards, two duPont awards, the Robert F Kennedy Journalism Award for International Television, and many other major international TV awards.

Channel 4’s Dispatches recently aired two Quicksilver investigative documentaries: "Undercover A&E" and "Rubbish Tip Britain." "Undercover A&E" received a five-star review from The Times, which called it “frightening, infuriating, important television.” "Rubbish Tip Britain" prompted the Welsh government to demand an urgent review by its environmental regulator and was praised by The Daily Telegraph as “another terrific Dispatches investigation.”

Afghanistan Undercover (US, PBS Frontline) / Afghanistan - No Country For Women (UK , ITV) has won a prestigious 2024 duPont-Colombia award, adding to its Emmy, Overseas Press Club of America and Gracie awards. Ramita Navai's reporting on the film earned her the 2023 Royal Television Society Presenter of the year award.

Israel's Second Front (PBS Frontline) which premiered on January 23, features correspondent Ramita Navai and director Karim Shah reported from the West Bank, investigating rising support for militant groups, including Hamas, since the Oct. 7 attack, Israel’s ongoing military campaign in the West Bank and the implications for a region on edge.

Other recent films include: 

Secrets & Power: China in the UK (60'/C4) made by correspondent Isobel Young and director Alasdair Glennie, investigated Chinese state interference in UK institutions and the repression of dissidents on UK soil. Revelations in the film sparked much press coverage and led to an official investigation into a major immigration advice centre working in the Chinese UK community.

In Ben Elton: The Great Railway Disaster (60'/C4, a collaboration with @RumpusMedia)  comedian and writer Ben Elton took a train journey of misadventure through Britain's railway network. In a film packed with wit and revelation he concluded privatisation is an experiment that’s gone badly wrong. The Times review said it was, "Incisive, entertaining and correct...mixing the right amount of comedy with grim, depressing reality."

Undercover Ambulance: NHS in Chaos (60'/C4) saw ambulance paramedic Daniel Waterhouse secretly film as the NHS endured its worst winter crisis on record. In its five-star review, The Guardian said Waterhouse filmed "every crumbling layer of a system that is close to total destruction...there is a special, awful power in seeing it directly, through the horrified eyes of a medic at work."  An editorial in The Sunday Times said it "lays bare our health care crisis...These are the pictures that health bosses and ministers would rather you did not see."
