Recordings of the live Cumberland Conversation with broadcaster and presenter Martin Stanford, from the green-screen studio at Cumberland Lodge, held on Wednesday 28 April.

Martin is a former BBC News and Sky News presenter who has covered many of the biggest breaking news stories of the last 30 years or more, from the Gulf War, Iraq War and Israel-Lebanon conflict to the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, the Boxing Day tsunami in the Indian Ocean, Hurricane Katrina, successive general elections, and the whale that got stranded in the River Thames. He has presented on many of the regional BBC radio stations and can currently be heard every weekday morning on LBC News 24.

He speaks candidly to our Chief Executive, Canon Dr Ed Newell, about presenting the news and some of the biggest stories he has covered to date, offering insights into the world of broadcasting, how to get started with a career in news reporting, and recent trends affecting the industry. This Conversation was held online, due to pandemic restrictions, with questions coming in from our live audience.
