Lionel Barber joined a panel of four last night for a special BBC Newsnight programme on the ‘Future of Media’.

Hosted by Jeremy Paxman, the panel consisted of Alan Rusbridger, editor of the Guardian; Peter Barron, Google’s director of external relations for Europe; and Mark Thompson, director general of the BBC.

Their discussion followed a short film by David Grossman, Newsnight’s political correspondent, which looked at the current state of the print media and how it is likely to look in the future.

Watch again on BBC iPlayer here (debate starts at 21’19).
