Download: Video, Slides

Contributor(s): Charlie Beckett

Released on 28 February 2014.

This lecture will consider the way the press, TV and radio have traditionally been seen as a key feature of British government and politics. Can new media sustain investigative journalism and expose wrong-doing in government? Statutory restrictions on the media and the way politicians relate to powerful media organisations will be examined.
