“Outside The Box – Life On The Sidelines of Sports Journalism”

Tuesday 26th January 2010, 6pm, On Location, National Media Museum

Despite the fact that sport is one of the most popular and profitable  aspects of modern entertainment, the study of media communications  rarely touches in its power and influence. In this talk noted journalist and author Harry Pearson reflects on the links between  media, journalism and sport through his reportage from the edges of  this vast industry. His forthcoming book is on cricket in the north and so we hope that he will be made welcome in Bradford.

Harry Pearson has written a weekly sports column in the Guardian  newspaper for more years than anyone cares to remember and has been on  the staff of groundbreaking football magazine ‘When Saturday Comes’  since 1989.  He has written seven books – all published by Little, Brown/Abacus – including The Far Corner (runner-up for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year 1996), Racing Pigs and Giant Marrows  (runner up Thomas Cook/Daily Telegraph Travel Book of the Year 1997),  A Tall Man In Low Land and Achtung Schweinehund! He lives in Northumberland with his partner Catherine, daughter Maisie and a French dog named, Colin – the subject of Hound Dog Days. His latest book Slipless in Settle – A Slow Turn Around Northern Cricket will be published in June 2010.
