Interesting BBC 4 programme: Four Thought
I was listening to the radio last night when a short programme came on which struck me as very relevant to everyone involved in Voices for Our Future. The specific episode I heard was is entitled "Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy: Forget Impartiality", in which the journalist-turned-oscar-winning-film-maker discusses how she found her voice, and why she feels that story-telling (where you get involved with and encourage your audience to engage with the situation and individuals you are writing about from a particular viewpoint) has been so much more meaningful to her than the impartial reportage that she began her career producing.
I'd be interested to hear your reactions. Do you agree with Sharmeen's conviction that this approach to documenting important issues is the best way of effecting change? I found the talk incredibly interesting.

Looking at the titles of previous editions, there might also be other speakers very much worth listening to here.
