News is the lifeblood of democracy, so there’s a lot at stake in the bidding to become the next provider of it for TV viewers in Wales.
Glamorgan students can hear from one of the more intriguing bidders – Gordon Main – in a guest lecture on Tuesday 2 March in the cinema (2pm).
Gordon’s pioneering work with an online TV service for Pembrokeshire drove him to put forward an idea for a network of 22 local news operations for Wales.
His lecture could not be more timely, as a contribution to the debate about the future of news.
