Chiswick Calendar Media Club: How to report an election – George IV

19 June @ 7:30 pm BST

Experts pool their many years of experience in reporting elections on TV and radio – the triumphs and the pitfalls. 

BBC Political correspondent and presenter Carolyn Quinn chairs a panel with other journalists and a pollster – all players in the political dramas that have characterised elections in recent years.

Katy Searle, former Executive Editor, Politics, with BBC News, managed the BBC’s most prominent news output and political coverage during three election campaigns, two referendums and the Covid crisis.

Joe Twynan is a co-founder and director of Deltapoll and one of Britain’s best known political pollsters, having previously worked as Head of Political and Social Research at YouGov.

With one more special guest to be confirmed, this is the perfect line up of guests to find out what it’s like behind the scenes at these high-stakes, adrenalin-fuelled all-nighters where bleary-eyed politicians and pundits nip in and out of the various media studios making predictions which can make them look either wise beyond their years or very foolish minutes later and careers are lost and won on the announcement of the returning officer.
