Shoreham Wordfest: Gabriel Gatehouse – International Perspectives

About this event

Gabriel Gatehouse in conversation with Robin Lustig.

An opportunity to reflect on global politics and international developments with two award-winning journalists and broadcasters, both with long careers as foreign correspondents in many of the world’s hot spots.

Gabriel Gatehouse started his journalistic career with the BBC’s Russian language service followed by front-line reporting in East Africa, Libya, Iraq, Russia and Ukraine. Until recently he was the International Editor for BBC’s Newsnight and writes regularly for the New Statesman, The Times and other news outlets.

In 2022, Gabriel reported and presented the podcast The Coming Storm which was short-listed for The Orwell Prize for Journalism. A year on from the Capitol Insurrection in Washington DC on 6 January 2021, Gabriel Gatehouse journeyed into the dark undergrowth of modern America, looking for the origins of the story that drove the crowds to storm the heart of US democracy.

Robin Lustig became a foreign correspondent in Madrid, Paris and Rome for the London-based news agency Reuters. He then worked for The Observer for twelve years, where he was home affairs editor, Middle East correspondent and assistant editor.

He joined the BBC in 1989, presenting programmes such as The World Tonight, File on 4 and Newshour on the BBC World Service. For the World Service, he reported on elections in the UK and USA as well as in many other countries, including Iran, Israel, Japan, Russia and Zimbabwe. He presented The World Tonight from more than 20 countries, including Afghanistan, China, Iran, Iraq, Japan, Kosovo and Mexico.
