    RSA Spotlights – taking you straight to the heart of the event, highlighting our favourite moments and key talking points.

What does this mean for the future of journalism, and the future of the public interest? In this excerpt from the event, Public Relations: The Master Now, the panel discuss what this means for the future of journalism, and the future of the public interest. Speakers: John Lloyd, senior research fellow, Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, Ed Williams, CEO, Edelman and Trish Evans, senior lecturer in public relations at the University of Westminster Watch the full replay: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNYDJ1fW4TY Follow the RSA on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/thersaorg Like the RSA on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/thersaorg

    • JLA Interview: John Lloyd 2

      John Lloyd has been behind some of the most successful and well-loved TV and radio (and adverts) of the last three decades. He’s also written or co-authored over 30 books, and is the driving force behind developing a new concept of education based on his BBC panel show, QI. Studying law at Cambridge, John joined the famed Footlights society, meeting a number of the writers and performers he would later work with. That group included Douglas Adams, whose Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy John would help bring to radio. After university, John joined BBC radio where he helped create shows that have become national institutions with The News Quiz (which John also briefly hosted), Quote...Unquote, The News Huddlines, and the original incarnation of To The Manor Born. Switching to TV, John’s first major production was the satirical Not the Nine O'Clock News with Mel Smith and Griff Rhys Jones, Rowan Atkinson, and Pamela Stephenson. The show created some of the most fondly remembered sketches of the era including Gerald the Gorilla, the darts players, and a classic interview with Billy Connelly. The show also provided a platform for writers including Richard Curtis, Clive Anderson, David Renwick, and Andy Hamilton. John then went on to produce Blackadder, working again with Rowan Atkinson and Richard Curtis, and creating arguably one the greatest sit-coms ever. At the same time he worked on Spitting Image alongside a host of comic writers and performers from Harry Enfield to Ian Hislop to Jo Brand. Briefly considered for the role as host of Have I Got News For You (he hosted the pilot episode) John remained behind the camera and created the panel show QI. QI has gone on to spawn a range of books and other merchandise, but has also evolved into a system of research, learning and study. John is at the forefront of looking at what real knowledge is and how it can be imparted. Reacting against the idea that Google and Wikipedia offer free access to knowledge, John considers what really is interesting, and useful, alongside tales from his varied and often surprising career.

          John Lloyd is a television producer and writer. He created Not the Nine O'Clock News and Spitting Image, and produced all four series of Blackadder. More recently, he has co-produced BBC2's QI, and is the presenter of BBC Radio 4's The Museum of Curiosity. A friend of the late Douglas Adams, Lloyd also co-wrote several episodes of Adams' lauded radio series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. His forthcoming book is Afterliff a follow up to The Meaning of Liff co-written with Douglas Adams in 1983. The book uses place names to describe the many hundreds of common experiences, feelings, situations and even objects which we all know and recognize, but for which no words exist. This text uses place names to describe some of these meanings.
