UCS Journalism Seminar presents:

FILM AND DISCUSSION: ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN (1976)
Robert Redford, Dustin Hoffman, Jason Robards
The true story of the reporters who “followed the money” to the White House

Tuesday 3 September, 5 pm (ish) – 7:30 pm / Lecture Theatre 3 (East Building)

The thing that never fails to amaze me whenever I watch All The President’s Men, and I’ve seen it several times now, is the way it manages to be a thriller without really being a thriller … throughout the majority of its running time, there is an air of tension and feeling of danger running through it that you don’t really shake off until the very last reel – even more remarkable in that we all know how this story ends! – Steve Grzesiak, letterboxd.com

Also coming up:

How to Be a Great Journalist – and Why Most Journalists Are Not, a lecture by DAVID RANDALL, longtime editor and newswriter at The Independent on Sunday and other papers, author of The Universal Journalist
Wednesday, 11 September, 5 pm (ish) / Waterfront Lecture Theatre 2

FILM AND DISCUSSION: THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE (2009)
Documentary on the preparation of Vogue’s September 2007 number. With Carol Brown, head of the School of Arts and former head of the fashion programme at University of Lincoln.
Tuesday, 17 September, 5 pm (ish) – 7:30 pm / Lecture Theatre 3 (East Building)

“… watching Coddington play yin to Wintour’s yang proves lively and instructive. All lasting magazines, including this one, reflect the battle between church and state, edit and advertising, art and commerce.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
