In our turbulent times, Roger Mosey argues in his new book that public broadcasting and high-quality journalism are needed more than ever – especially when Westminster politics seems to be so badly damaged. He is joined in discussion by Baroness Sally Morgan, who has worked at the heart of government. They will be discussing how the daily news might be the very thing to help our democracy.
