Investigative Journalism in the Digital Age - A talk by Iain Overton

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances on Iain's part we have had to bring this talk forward one day to Tuesday rather than Wednedsday, we hope this does not inconvenice you but we decided it was better to change the day rather than cancel the talk.

Iain also recently resigned as the Editor of the Bureau of Investigative Journalism due to his involvement in the recent Newsnight programme.

Iain Overton the former Managing Editor of the Bureau of Investigative Journalism will be joining us to give a talk on his fascinating career as an investigative journalist.

Prior to joining the Bureau he was a commissioning executive at ITN and a senior producer at the BBC.

His work to date includes investigations into the international trade in counterfeit pharmaceuticals, corporate killings in Iraq, human rights abuses by the Brazilian police and Glasgow gang-land murders linked to security contracts.

Iain has worked in over 85 countries around the world. His work has been recognized with a Peabody Award, 2 Amnesty International Awards, a OneWorld Award, a Prix Circom, a BAFTA Scotland and 3 RTS nominations, amongst others.

The Bureau of Investigative Journalism is a not-for-profit organisation based at City University, London. The Bureau supports original journalism by producing high-quality investigations for press and broadcast media with the aim of educating the public and the media on both the realities of today’s world and the value of honest reporting.

Since it launched the Bureau has secured over 45 front-page stories and has produced a number of award winning web, radio and TV reports. These include winning the Amnesty International Digital Awards two years running.

People are encouraged to arrive from 6.30 p.m. to have a glass of wine from our charity wine bar, chat to other members and take their seats.

The Talk will start at 7.00 p.m. prompt.

After Iain's lecture there will be a short question and answer session before we retire to the Enterprise pub nearby for further debate around 8.00 or 8.15 p.m.

A suggested donation of £2 would be welcome on the night towards the cost of room and equipment hire. All CLHG talks are open to the general public.

    I was very impressed by Iains work and dedication. I want to know more! I sincerely hope he can get back to work sooner rather than later.

    This man has done some superb work in the past. I hope that he will soon continue his investigations and reporting of dodgy events and governments.
