Media Talk on Arab Television News and Al Jazeera

What will be the effect of Al Jazeera's English channel on the Western world?

The Frontline Club and the Open Society Foundation invite you to join a select group of media professionals for a discussion on Arab television news and a provocative new book about Al-Jazeera.

"What I was not expecting to find was that the story of Al-Jazeera was not just the story of a news organisation. Al-Jazeera has been so inextricably linked to tumultuous recent events in the Middle East -- indeed at times it has been at the very eye of the storm -- that this news network is, in fact, the story of upheavals that have taken place in that troubled region in recent years." Extract from ‘Al-Jazeera: How Arab TV News Challenged the World’ by Hugh Miles

Now Al-Jazeera is preparing the launch of its English version in November 2005, aimed not only at Arabs and Muslims but Americans as well, what will be the effects of the network's new station on the Western world?

The discussion will be moderated by John Owen, Executive Producer of NewsXchange.

Speakers will include:Yosri Fouda, London bureau chief for Al Jazeera; Ambassador Elizabeth Mckune, the US ambassador in charge of the Media Outreach Programme and Hugh Miles, author of the new book 'AL-JAZEERA: How Arab TV News Challenged the World’.

We meet at the Frontline Club, 13 Norfolk Place, Paddington
