Since November 30, 1971.

The Global Correspondent


Bondi born, Sydney trained and London based for more than half a century, John Pilger is one of the most successful global journalists of his generation and was recently inducted into the Australian Media Hall of Fame.

He was the youngest person to win Britain’s highest journalism award, Journalist of the Year, and the first to win it twice. His work as an investigative reporter, film-maker and author – in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, Britain, the United States and Australia – has won him renown across the world.

Join us for lunch with the legendary correspondent and a conversation moderated by Fairfax Foreign Editor and Gold Walkley winner Michael Bachelard.
