The Broadcasting of News and Current Affairs

We get much of our news, first of all, from the radio (or television) before we see a newspaper. But do the broadcasters do their job properly? Do they trivialise the news, or, perhaps, blur the distinction between ' hard ' news and opinion? The broadcasters have their own answers to these and other questions.

The programme includes interviews with PROFESSOR ASA BRIGGS , Vice-Chancellor, Sussex University RT HON RICHARD CROSSMAN , MP

SIR HUGH GREENE , Director-General of the BBC, 1960-69 and a discussion by WILLIAM HARDCASTLE Of The World at One

PETER WOON , Editor Radio News STUART HALL, Deputy Director, Centre for Cultural Studies, Birmingham University
