At a talk given at the Holiday Inn, Camden Lock, on the Wednesday evening before the Olympics began undercover reporter Ben Fellows and radio journalist Tony Gosling give their accounts of the alternative media story that was the prelude to thousands of military personnel and police being drafted in to take over from private security firm G4S. Ben describes conditions a month before the olympics with his security training being a total shambles and as he says himself - all a terrorist needed to do to get into the olympics was to join the queue.
Tony Gosling then goes on to scope out the mainstream media landscape in Britain puncturing that illusion that we have a free press in the UK and also to look at the wider context, the financial crisis, impending war in the Middle East and the decent of the benchmark BBC into dumbed down trivia over the last 25 years since Victor Rothschild asked Marmaduke Hussey to sack the BBC's last truly independent Director General Alasdair Milne.
