Journalism in Mexico: the historic battle. Jaime Abello Banfi, Adrián López and Ana Cristina Ruedas in conversation with Jacobo García

Querétaro 2017, 

Journalism in Mexico is in danger. The constant attacks and violence against professionals who work in the industry has increased consistently since 2006, when the journalist protection protocol was first introduced, following the model used previously in Colombia. Why is the Mexican context one of the most dangerous in the world in which to carry out this profession? Jaime Abello Banfi (FNPI), Ana Cristina Ruedas (Artículo 19) and Adrián López (Noroeste) will talk to Jacobo García.

Normandy ’44: D-Day and the Battle for France

Hay Festival 2019, 

D-Day and the 76 days of bitter fighting in Normandy that followed have come to be seen as a defining episode in the Second World War. Its story has been endlessly retold, and yet it remains a narrative burdened by both myth and assumed knowledge. Drawing on unseen archives and testimonies from around the world, the war historian challenges much of what we think we know. He reveals how the sheer size and scale of the Allies’ war machine ultimately dominated the strategic, operational and tactical limitations of the German forces.
