News of the World? The Future of International Broadcasting

On Tuesday June 16th, Timothy Garton Ash will chair a panel discussion on international broadcasting at the Thomson Reuters Headquarters in London.

The panel will include:

  • Christine Ockrent, COO, Audiovisuel Extérieure de la France
  • Richard Sambrook, Director, Global News, BBC
  • Tian Wei, Anchor for domestic and international news, CCTV
  • Ben Rayner, Executive Producer, Al Jazeera English

More and more broadcasters are battling for attention in the ever more crowded market for world news. What are their aims and how do they appeal to a global audience? How are they responding to the challenges posed by new players and increasingly polarised perspectives? How do you reconcile supposedly universal news values with the projection of an individual nation's 'soft power'?
