Tuesday 23 February, Frontline Club, London.
In the first Reflections event of this year, Richard Sambrook looked back on a 30-year career at the BBC. Currently Director of BBC Global News, Richard has worked on many of the major stories of the past three decades.
As a senior producer for BBC1's Nine O'Clock News, he covered the collapse of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and co-ordinated coverage of the war in Bosnia. Fourteen years later, as Director of News in 2003, he defended BBC Radio 4's Today programme story claiming Tony Blair's government had exaggerated claims over Iraq's weapons of mass destruction and later gave evidence to the Hutton Inquiry.
Richard Sambrook discussed the stories and people who have shaped his career with Vin Ray, the Director of the BBC College of Journalism.
