In the week that ITV sacrificed The Southbank Show for some savings we were somewhat cheered to receive notice that Lord Melvyn Bragg would be delivering the annual Bagehot lecture on arts and the media at QMW in a month's time. Aside from it being a timely announcement, Bragg is a brilliant speaker to have secured. He's edited and produced The Southbank Show since 1978 and went on to a stint as Controller of Arts at LWT. He's a much loved Radio 4 staple, a scriptwriter and author and Labour life peer. We can't wait as this will surely be an absorbing, entertaining and topical talk. Reserve your free place at the lecture which takes place on 2 June at 6.30pm at the Mason Lecture Theatre, QMW, Mile End. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
