When is it ever okay to curtail a citizen’s freedom?
At a time when the war over privacy and the need for surveillance rages and younger generations seemingly embrace the era of public disclosure about anything and everything, four speakers put and defend their positions. Expect cross-examinations, rebuttals and fur to fly.
The debaters are:
Iraqi/English scientist Jim Al-Khalili
Dutch historian Frank Dikotter
New Zealand privacy expert Bob Stevens
British broadcaster, writer and comedian Sandi Toksvig.
Keeping the joust clean will be journalist Guyon Espiner.
1 hour 30 minutes
