The week ahead at the Frontline Club: First Wednesday special on Egypt and the Middle East

In response to the extraordinary events witnessed in Egypt we are holding a First Wednesday special event with Paddy O’Connell, presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Broadcasting House. He will be joined by a panel of experts and journalists fresh from reporting events in Egypt to both take stock and ask what lies ahead for the country and the region.

The week ahead also sees a packed schedule of talks, screenings and the return of Documentary Matchmaking in association with The Channel 4 BRITDOC Foundation. Screenings include Power of the Powerless looking at Czechoslovakia’s 1989 Velvet Revolution and Nero’s Guest, investigating India’s agrarian crisis.

The rescheduled discussion on the political situation in Zimbabwe takes place next Wednesday and our Masterclass in the art of interview is fully booked.
