Evening Meeting: Travels with Aunties (My life with the BBC World Service) – Alastair Lack

Date and time: 12th September 2017 from 7:30 pm until 10:00 pm

Alastair Lack studied history at Oxford University, taught in India, worked in publishing in New York, and then joined the BBC. He worked for the BBC World Service for over 26 years, as a presenter, producer and editor, finally becoming head of Productions. In the course of his work he travelled widely and met many fascinating people. He will describe the formation and history of the BBC World Service, and talk about the places he visited and some of the colourful people he met on the way.  Apart from appealing to anyone interested in radio and the spread of cultural ideas, this talk will be of added interest to all insomniacs and those of us who have lived part of our working life abroad.

Alastair has also worked for Oxford University, and is presently a guide to the University and City of Oxford. His talks at the Oxford Literary Festival are invariably sold out!
