Preview Screening: One Rogue Reporter + Q&A
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Rich Peppiatt. Chaired by Stewart Purvis, professor of television journalism at City University. He is a former editor-in-chief and CEO of ITN, Ofcom’s Partner for Content and Standards, and author of When Reporters Cross The Line: The Heroes, the Villains, the Hackers and the Spies.
Since Rich Peppiatt’s hilariously withering resignation letter to Daily Star proprietor, Richard Desmond, became a viral sensation in 2011, his brutal honesty has made him a regular tabloid commentator on TV and radio. Peppiatt has appeared before the Leveson Inquiry and his searing testimonies have made headlines around the world.
With One Rogue Reporter, Peppiatt delivers a mercilessly satirical dissection of his former trade. Turning the tables on unscrupulous newspaper bosses, he lampoons the hypocrisy and dishonesty of his former employers through a series of mischievous stunts and interviews with heavyweights from the worlds of journalism, ﬁlm, comedy and politics.
