Free podcast download: The lost art of reportage
Tuesday 10 November 2009
Was there a golden age for international correspondents? Are current affairs now largely brought to us in dumbed down soundbites? Who now sets the framework for coverage of world events?
In this podcast recorded at The Independent Woodstock literary festival Dame Ann Leslie, recognised as one of the 40 most influential journalists of our time ('Killing my own Snakes'), talks with The Independent's award-winning correspondent Robert Fisk ('The Age of the Warrior') and BBC's renowned foreign reporter Martin Bell ('The Truth that sticks - New Labour's Breach of Trust'). They discuss whether reportage is indeed a 'lost art'.
