This Public Lecture is given in celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Wolfson Press Fellowship Programme, a scheme which brings journalists to Cambridge for a term to research a project of their own choosing. To date, the Programme has welcomed nearly 300 journalists from 46 countries. The lecturer, John Lloyd, is a distinguished journalist who has been a fierce critic of the UK media in recent years. He argues that our media are no longer functioning as an inquiring check on the excesses of the political class but instead have become an alternative establishment, dedicated to a theatrical distrust of individual politicians and a calculated indifference to the real-life intricacies of policy making and government.

The lecture will be chaired by Dame Patricia Hodgson, Principal of Newnham College and a member of the BBC Trust.

This talk is part of the Wolfson Press Fellowship series.
