On 17th October 2014 at the V&A we will trace the story of the first 500 years of the news media from Gutenberg to Zuckerberg, and see how the press has stood up – and at times cowed down – to the powers that be. From the first newspaper to the recent advent of pre-emptive news and robo-journalism, via Crimean war reporting, the yellow press, Watergate and the Gonzos we chart the key moments that brought us the fourth estate as we know it.
Subscribers will receive information on how to attend the event for free.
