Reporting the Referendum

A 5 Million Questions Event from the University of Dundee

The news story dominating the airwaves, front pages and websites of Scotland until late 2014 is the historic independence referendum. The debate is highly partisan, at times complex and frequently ill tempered. The duty and challenge for our journalists - print, broadcast and increasingly importantly, online - could scarcely be greater and at a time of great turmoil in the media industry. Can interest be generated and sustained and can frequent accusations of bias be overcome to fulfil the vital task of reporting the referendum?

Journalist David Torrance chairs a panel of high-profile media makers to look at these issues and more.

Panelists include Simon Pia, Kate Higgins and BBC Scotland's Brian Taylor.

A drinks reception will follow this event. Pease note that overflow theatres may be in operation.
