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.
Angela Bellassie interviews John Redmand from Standards Against Female Exploitation or SAFE about his campaign to stop people trafficking.
Ed Lander joins us from The Open Rights Group in Bristol and hotfoot from the national conference in London. He also discusses the rights and wrongs of Windows 8 which has arguably been a disaster and ORG’s campaign for more information when the internet is being censored – Error 451.
