Despatches From... An Insider's View into International Reporting

About

Join us for an exclusive look behind the BBC News headlines, featuring a special live link direct from correspondents in the frontline.

In this session, the Deputy CEO BBC News & Director of Journalism, Jonathan Munro, and Chief Presenter, Lucy Hockings, will offer a rare behind-the-scenes look into how a world-class news organisation like the BBC continues to deliver trusted news under difficult conditions, like a war zone, and across an ever-changing media landscape.

They will be joined by Mandi Wicks, Director of News and Current Affairs at SBS, and Justin Stevens, Director of News at ABC, to further discuss the importance of trusted news, and the challenges currently facing news providers. Topics for discussion will include the proliferation of both misinformation and disinformation, and the possible effects of AI and new technologies on news production.
