The Fifth Estate: The Guardians

Listen to The Fifth Estate: The Guardians

Join host Sally Warhaft with Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger, visiting from the UK, and Guardian Australia editor-in-chief Katharine Viner, to discuss the news, newspapers and Australia’s latest addition to online journalism.

It’s been 192 years since the founding of the British Guardian (formerly the Manchester Guardian) and just five months since the newspaper’s launch of an Australian edition – independent, online and free. So how is Australia’s latest source of news and current affairs faring? How does it fit in with Australia’s media culture? What is the plan for success? And how does this organisation maintain its independence?

For media buffs and journalists, this is essential viewing.
