Description

A series of monthly conversations that encourage us to engage with important issues that impact on all our lives. In an informal, relaxed atmosphere, we discuss and debate with influential figures in fields such as politics, law, social justice and human rights.
Conversations are facilitated by the

Our guest in September is Martin Bashir

His topic: ‘Self affirmation v Self sacrifice’
The BBC¹s Religious Affairs Correspondent, Martin Bashir, asks if the Christian Gospel is about subjugation or affirmation.


Martin Bashir

conducting a series of exclusive interviews and landmark documentaries on subjects as wide-ranging as Diana Princess of Wales, Michael Jackson and the nanny Louise Woodward who was charged with killing the child in her care. In addition to breaking internationally-impactful stories he also anchored major events, from the Olympic Games to the Royal Wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton. His determined pursuit of investigative journalism has impacted the criminal justice process – with his documentary about the youths suspected of murdering the black teenager Stephen Lawrence being used in court proceedings that resulted in their convictions for murder.
