Lindsey Hilsum: In Defence of Journalism

WELLS SAID:
"I would rather be called a journalist than an artist."

With journalists across the world under threat today and with the very centralities of journalism, indeed the very nature of truth it-self, challenged, Lindsey Hilsum celebrates the crucial role that journalists continue to play.

Lindsey Hilsum is Channel 4 News International Editor, and has covered many of the conflicts of recent years including in Syria, Ukraine and the Arab Spring. She was in Baghdad for the 2003 US invasion of Iraq, and in Belgrade for the 1999 NATO bombing. In 1994, she was the only English-speaking correspondent in Rwanda when the genocide began.

Her most recent book is 'In Extremis - the Life of War Correspondent Marie Colvin'.

In Association with English PEN.
