Should a Privacy Law Restrict the Press?


Wednesday 10 September 1997 at 20:00 BST (19:00 GMT)

In the early hours of Sunday 31 August, celebrity royal Princess Diana was killed, along with her lover Dodi Fayed, in a car crash in Paris. The accident followed a high speed chase by the Paparazzi, keen to get the latest shot of the couple together. In spite of evidence that the driver of their car was well over the alcohol limit, many have pointed the finger at the press as bearing much of the responsibility for the accident.
  • Should there be restrictions on press freedom in the name of privacy?
  • Do public figures like royalty have a right to their privacy?
  • Should such privacy be protected with new legislation?
We are delighted to have Tessa Mayes from the London International Research Exchange as guest speaker. Tessa is research co-ordinator of the "Freedom and Privacy Project" at the LIRE media group. The discussion will be chaired by Chris Ellison (Internet Freedom).
