Event description

Description

TOPIC: Church of Fear: Inside the Weird World of Scientology

SPEAKER: John Sweeney from BBC Panaroma

What’s the talk about?

Tom Cruise and John Travolta say the Church of Scientology is a force for good. Others disagree. Award-winning journalist John Sweeney investigated the Church for more than half a decade. During that time he was intimidated, spied on and followed and the results were spectacular: Sweeney lost his temper with the Church’s spokesman on camera and his infamous ‘exploding tomato’ clip was seen by millions around the world.

John Sweeney tells the story of his experiences for the first time and paints a devastating picture of this strange organisation, from former Scientologists who tell heartbreaking stories of families torn apart and lives ruined to its current followers who say it is the solution to many of mankind’s problems.

Speaker: John Sweeney is an award-winning journalist and author, currently working as an investigative journalist for the BBC’s Panorama series and Newsnight.
