Although known as an Island, Knightstone is actually a promontory as it is connected by Knightstone Causeway to the mainland. A pedestrian causeway also extends north-west from the island, this forms the west bank of Marine Lake.

This week former newspaper editor Nic Outterside discusses the slow death of regional newspaper journalism. The fact that so few journalists are now working regionally and so many papers have closed is very unhealthy for democracy. Nic also discusses two of his articles on secret US flights over Scotland at Machrihanish air base and also the 1998 Bilderberg conference where a reporter was arrested just for knocking at a door.

Simon Chapman joins us from the Bristol branch of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) to tell us about a screening and discussion the union is organising at the Cube Cinema at 7:30pm on Fri 21 November.

When the phone hacking scandal engulfs Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World, Rich decides to use the skills he’s honed on Fleet Street to turn the tables on the press barons peddling sex, lies and scaremongering under the cloak of journalism. The result is a hilarious documentary: part exposé, part comedy, part cri de coeur against unaccountable press power. Read More…
