Peter Worthington has had an amazing life. And his obituary, which he wrote himself, certainly has an arresting opening line.
Stephanie Flanders, Economics Editor of the BBC will deliver the annual Bob Friend Memorial Lecture in the Pilkington Lecture Theatre at 7pm on Thursday, 28 February, i.e. this Thursday. Before Stephanie speaks, Neil Dunwoodie of Sky News will award the 2013 Bob Friend Memorial Scholarship to this year's scholar, Georgia Fry. Previous Bob Friend Scholars will also be in attendance. This is the most important public event in the Centre for Journalism’s calendar. Our established tradition is that every student, undergraduate and postgraduate, should attend. Dress code is smart/formal (i.e. as you dress for news days). I look forward to seeing you there to celebrate and share in Georgia’s success and show our gratitude to Sky News and the Friend family.
