The Christopher Hitchens Lecture: Making News Matter

Baillie Gifford Stage

The BBC’s Chief International Correspondent and senior presenter Lyse Doucet speaks about how to keep people engaged and what the media can change to make news matter. Doucet has covered news in countries including Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran, and has been on the ground for pivotal moments, including the coalition withdrawal from Afghanistan after the Taliban offensive in the country in 2021, and the war in Ukraine. Doucet has created multiple documentaries over the years, including Children of Syria and Children of the Gaza War. Her lecture is followed by a Q&A with senior international affairs correspondent at the Guardian and Observer Emma Graham-Harrison.
