In the second video segment, we ask him for his views on the ‘Golden Age’ of Lankan print journalism. He takes a realistic assessment of the quality of Lankan print media today (2012), and wonders if newspapers in their current form have a future. He then moves on to recalling the early days of television broadcasting in Sri Lanka, where he played a key advisory role.
