Sam McAlister is the woman who clinched infamous interviews for BBC Newsnight with the likes of Bill Clinton, Elon Musk, and of course Prince Andrew. Join us to learn how one person was able to push her way into Buckingham Palace to secure the BAFTA winning interview.


From behind-the-scenes tales of the ruthless nature of working in the media first to McAlister’s experience of Netflix producing the hugely successful feature film Scoop, this will be an event as captivating as the interviews themselves.


Sam will be in conversation with Festival Chair Lucy Cotter.
