The Truth About Dishonesty by Evan Davis

BBC presenter Evan Davis discusses honesty in politics and broadcasting.

Evan Davis is a British economist, journalist and presenter for the BBC. In October 2001, Davis took over from Peter Jay as the BBC's economics editor. He is currently on sabbatical from this post and is a presenter on BBC Radio 4's Today programme. Evan Davis is also the presenter for the BBC venture-capitalist programme Dragons' Den.

In this talk he will draw on his background in economics and broadcasting to ask whether presenters and broadcasters wouldn't be better off simply being as honest and open as possible. He argues that in the long term the truth usually emerges, and so the main consequence of not being honest is simply that no-one knows who to trust.

Part of the Saturday Evening Lecture Series, dinks reception follows.
