Our two-day Journalism in Crisis conference was a great success. One of the many highlights was a keynote speech by Mark Thompson, Director-General of the BBC. Other distinguished speakers included Professor James Curran, Goldsmiths College, and Professor Todd Gitlin, Columbia University, and a fantastic range of panellists including Roger Alton, The Independent; Kelvin MacKenzie; Helen Boaden, BBC News; Simon Bucks, Sky News; Dorothy Byrne, Channel 4 News; and Robin Elias, ITV News.

Please also add your thoughts and comments.
