This event will launch the eight edition of James Curran and Jean 
Seaton's "Power Without Responsibility: Broadcasting, Press and The 
Internet in Britain".

The book, which has six new chapters and much new original research 
material throughout, has been in continuous publication since 1981.

It has been translated into five languages, copied in many nations and 
is seen as an iconic and founding text in analysing the media. It put 
the history of the press and broadcasting and communications at the 
heart of understanding and policy reccomendations.

Hugh Grant - fresh from playing Jeremy Thorpe in the BBC One drama, A 
Very English Scandal - will introduce the event - speaking about the 
press in Britain.

There will also be an auction of the original cartoon for the cover by 
Martin Rowson, the distinguished cartoonist who drew the image. Rowson 
is also a University of Westminster Honorary Fellow. He will conduct the 
auction with Lord Carter which will raise funds for the Winter Shelter 
for the Homeless at St James's Piccadilly - who Seaton and the Orwell 
Foundation have been working with for the recent dramatisation of 
Orwell's Down and Out In Paris and London.

Professor James Curran, now at Goldsmiths, University of London, was one 
of the founding members not only of Westminster's media department but 
also of the tradition - the Westminster School - of practical policy 
engagement. He has written and edited more than 20 important books on 
the media. He has been visiting Professor at the University of 
California, Oslo, Pennsylania, Stanford, and Stockholm. He is 
internationally recognised as an influential media theorist and campaigner.

Professor Jean Seaton - as the Director of the Orwell Foundation - has 
created pioneering ways of highlighting media issues and intervening in 
policy and public debates. The Foundation runs the most prestigous 
prizes for political writing and journalism, great public lectures and 
other events. It has recently read 1984 LIVE. She is co-director, with 
Professor Rosie Thomas, of the pioneering and unique FCO Chevening South 
Asian Journalists Programme at Westminster. She has written a volume in 
the Official History of the BBC, titled Pinkoes and Traitors: the BBC 
and the Nation 1974-87.
