Women Behind the Headlines
Sam McAlister on Scoops and the Prince Andrew Interview

Monday, 7th October 2024, 7pm, Upstairs at the Prince Albert.

‘Behind every great interview is a great booker – Sam McAlister is one of the unsung heroes of television news’ Piers Morgan
 

David Bradley talks to Sam McAlister about her book Scoops, which is now a Netflix movie. 

 

Sam, who was Newsnight's most effective content producer, will share the story about how she clinched the (in)famous Prince Andrew interview, not to mention those with Stormy Daniels, Steven Seagal, Mel Greig and Julian Assange to name some.

 

We’ll discover the secrets of how the best news gets made, changes at the BBC, the future of ‘mainstream media’ in the age of social media and how power and privilege affects news and programmes we consume.

The story of hell and heroism that was Arnhem 
Told by a man that served there.

Monday, 28th October 2024, 7pm, Upstairs at the Prince Albert.


Sunday Times Best Selling Author Col. Stuart Tootal wrote The Last Para with WW2 Para vet John Humphries.

 

Tootal brings out Humphreys' epic story of his extraordinary war. It's a powerful and authentic account of one soldier's war from Tobruk to Arnhem and all points in between.

 

Humphreys, now 101, parachuted into Arnhem with the Parachute Regiment, only to be outnumbered and outgunned by the Germans.

Then, as a POW, he escaped twice. Stuart, who commanded 3 PARA in Helmand, brings the story to life in a way only a battle-hardened soldier can.
