Journalism on the front line

In a special extended edition of Over To You, The Editors, Richard Sambrook meets a panel of legendary journalists from around the world to discuss if a story can be too dangerous to cover. With the number of fatalities among media workers at a record high, Paul Conroy, the Sunday Times photographer who was working with correspondent Marie Colvin when she was killed in Syria earlier this year joins the BBC’s Frank Gardner, himself badly injured on assignment in 2004 and CNN’s veteran producer Ingrid Formanek - whose part in covering the Gulf War was played by Helena Bonham Carter in the film Live From Baghdad. With leading Pakistani journalist Owais Aslam Ali in Islamabad explaining the situation in his homeland they’ll discuss the dangers that may be putting journalism itself at risk.
