The BBC’s Brian Hanrahan Speaks in Iceland

By Iceland Review

BBC Correspondent Brian Hanrahan will give a lecture on “The Power of the Media in Times of Change” at the School of Education in Reykjavík on Tuesday, January 27. The event is organized by the English-Speaking Union of Iceland.

Hanrahan is among the BBC’s most respected journalists. His reporting on the Falklands War in 1982 has been used as a textbook example of how to report under difficult circumstances. Hanrahan also reported on the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 and the collapse of communism in the USSR and Eastern Europe.

The lecture begins at 5 pm at the Bratti Lecture Theatre, School of Education, University of Iceland (enter from Háteigsvegur). Drinks and light refreshments, co-sponsored by the embassies of Canada, India and the United States, will be served following the lecture. Admission is free.

The English-Speaking Union (ESU) is an international charity whose purpose is to create international understanding and friendship through the use of the English language. Founded in 1918, ESU Iceland was launched in the autumn of 2008.

The ESU Iceland was assisted in organizing this event by the Association of Teachers of English in Iceland (FEKÍ) and the British embassy.
