2019 Sue Lloyd-Roberts Annual Memorial Lecture with Guest Speaker Lyse Doucet
Journalism in Crisis – What Would Sue do?
This lecture series was established in honour of our alumna, Sue Lloyd-Roberts, an award-winning broadcast journalist whose uncompromising and courageous documentaries highlighted humanitarian issues across the world.
We are delighted that our speaker this year will be world-renowned, award-winning Lyse Doucet, Chief International Correspondent and Senior Presenter for BBC World News television and BBC World Service Radio. Lyse was a BBC foreign correspondent with postings in Jerusalem, Amman, Tehran, Islamabad, Kabul and Abidjan for 15 years, before becoming a presenter in 1999. She was paramount in the coverage of the "Arab Spring" across the Middle East and North Africa and, for the past 20 years, has continued to cover all major stories in this area.
The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception. Both are free, but please register to attend. Deadline: 21 January.*
Following the reception, there will be a fundraising dinner. As the lecture falls on 25 January, the dinner will be a traditional Burns Night Supper in the company of both the Principal and Honorary Fellow, Val McDermid, and with actor Stuart Bowman (Versailles, Bodyguard) giving the Address to a Haggis. Deadline: 14 January.*
Dinner Dress Code: Smart Casual
The proceeds from the dinner will go to the Sue Lloyd-Roberts Fund to support St Hilda's students who wish to explore careers in the media.
