The Global Conversation

25 September 2007 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Chatham House, London


Richard Sambrook, Director, BBC Global News



Reception 19:00; Event 19:30

With more sources of news, information and data than ever before, the voice of authoritative news coverage, once confined to a few powerful organizations, is spread across a wide range of sources and all of them can reach a global audience - patriarchal broadcasting is long dead. How can news organizations remain relevant in the saturated market of the information revolution, with its uncertain sources, blogs and spin?

Richard Sambrook, the BBC's Director of Global News will draw on over 20 years' experience in both print and broadcast media to examine how the world of news reporting has changed due to the impact of the information revolution. He will explore the role of international broadcasting in the 21st century, the impact of the internet and increasing competition, the politicisation of broadcasters, the future of objectivity and the end of neutrality.

This is an Under 35s Forum event for Chatham House members only. Registration for this event has now closed.
