The Media v the Mighty.
Derek Taylor tracks the long and bitter fight between journalists and those in power. On a journey through the centuries, during wars and in peacetime, we discover that neither side has always told the truth. And, today, when social media has put mass communication in the hands of anyone with a smart-phone, Derek asks: What hope for the rest of us who just want to know what’s really going on?
Included in the ticket price will be his book “Fayke Newes”
Derek is a former TV war correspondent, who worked for ITN and reported from Northern Ireland, South Africa and all across the middle east.
Now in retirement, he has returned to his first passion and has become a best-selling history writer and a public speaker on both sides of the Atlantic.
