An Evening with Martin Bell: War and the Death of the News
Sun 7 Oct
19:00 - 20:00
Yvonne Arnaud Theatre
Former BBC War Correspondent Martin Bell has reported from war zones around the world from Vietnam to Iraq. Throughout his 50 years in journalism he has witnessed a dramatic change in the way war is fought, and reported. Truth is degraded in the name of balance and good taste, reports are delivered from the sidelines, and social media, with rumours and unverifiable videos, has ushered in a post-truth world.
As modern news increasingly seeks to entertain first and inform second, Martin Bell, issues an impassioned call to put the substance back into reporting.
