    Present Tense: Patrick Chalmers, Closer to Democracy

    "Uploaded on Feb 22, 2018 by BrockwoodParkSchool

    Patrick Chalmers has been a Journalist for nigh-on 30 years. In 1994, he joined Reuters in Brussels, staying 11 years with the company. He took postings in London, Kuala Lumpur and back, with specific reporting assignments taking him all over the world. Over that time, Patrick witnessed the workings of politics and media first hand and grew dispirited with what he saw.

    He quit Reuters 2005 to write Fraudcast News, a critique of the media and political landscape, which suggested possible remedies. In work since, he has focused on journalism that examines more participatory and transparent political systems - something closer to the ideals of original democracy. Patrick's latest project All Hands On features short films looking at the crisis in Western democracy and real-life remedies to its problems.

    While working on this project he visited Brockwood Park School to share some of his explorations."
