Sandy Bremner

In conversation with Prof. Alan Marcus

5:30pm, Tuesday 19th November 2013
Belmont Picturehouse Cinema, Aberdeen

Following the dramatic political change in Burma led by Nobel Peace Prize recipient Aung San Suu Kyi, the international development charity, BBC Media Action, was asked to assist in the creation of Burma's new public broadcasting network, and the individual they chose to advise was – Sandy Bremner.  BBC Scotland's Managing Editor for the Northeast and Northern Isles, Sandy Bremner has a distinguished background as television executive and journalist.

Born in Banff and a graduate of Aberdeen University, Bremner was an investigative reporter for the Press and Journal, winning Scotland's Young Journalist of the Year award, before joining the BBC.  In this Director's Cut Masterclass, Sandy will talk about his role in stories on the Orkney child abuse inquiry, the Piper Alpha tragedy, Hong Kong's handover to China, Diana's fatal crash and his ongoing activities in Burma.
