Inel Tomlinson hosts a conversation with the teams from BBC’s Newsround and Sky Kids’ FYI, who produce news for young people.
This event is closed for new bookings.

With social media and 24-hour rolling news, how do you engage young people in the issues that concern them? What’s the role of a News Editor and what makes a good reporter/presenter? How can young people tell their own stories?  Are there ways to avoid fake news?  What editorial decisions are made when reporting on conflicts such as the crisis in Ukraine?

Speakers include Newsround presenter De-Graft Mensah and Hannah Edwards (Senior Journalist) and the team behind Sky Kids’ weekly news show, FYI: Nicky Cox MBE (Editor-in-Chief, First News & CEO Fresh Start Media), Chris Rogers (Creative Director & Executive Producer, Fresh Start Media) and FYI Reporter, Scarlett.


Following this event, the panel will be available to meet and greet audience members. 

The ticket price also includes informal drop-in activities and screening of behind-the-scenes content.

Accessibility

BAFTA is an arts charity that is open and welcoming to everyone. This means we want every visit to BAFTA 195 Piccadilly to be as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.

Our newly developed building has been designed with accessibility in mind, and we have made improvements including adding an additional lift, widening doors and corridors, removing steps and ledges and installing disabled toilets on every floor. Working with Peter Connell Associates, we have made significant changes to improve accessibility, and we will engage with our audiences to continue to improve.

We are developing a comprehensive Access Guide for our newly refurbished building, which will be published on this page soon.

In the meantime, as we develop our procedures and processes, if you are attending one of our events at 195 Piccadilly and have access requirements, then please email events@bafta.org with as much notice as possible to discuss these with us. Accompanying assistants, carers or companions can attend free of charge. Please email events@bafta.org ahead of the event to book this complimentary ticket.
