Martin Bell – Ilkley Literature Festival
22nd September, 2017
Hailed as the journalist who defined the term ‘war correspondent’, Martin Bell had a distinguished 30-year career at the BBC before becoming an outspoken MP. His coverage of global conflicts earned him multiple awards, but the profession he loved is in stark decline. In the age of fake news Martin gives a moving, personal account of war and calls for the revival of journalism with substance.
