Town Hall Talks
Workshops & Learning
Funzing presents a unique evening with award winning broadcaster and documentary maker Reggie Yates, in partnership with Shoreditch Town Hall.
What took his career from the BBC Radio 1 studios through to the refugee camps of Syria? What was it like to be on the front-line of the Mexican war on drugs? This rare 'In Conversation' will get under the skin of his exciting career and feature select footage of his under-cover adventures.
Reggie Yates’ career has seen him move from fronting children's programming, to national radio to become an RTS award-winning documentary maker. In the last five years, Reggie has become synonymous with critically acclaimed documentaries. His films include the BBC3 Extreme series, Reggie Yates: Extreme Russia, Extreme South Africa and Extreme UK.
Other notable films he has made include the critically acclaimed BBC Two documentary Grenfell Tower’s Hidden Victims which aired in March last year and the amazing Insider series.
In 2017, Reggie released his debut book Unseen: My Journey with Penguin Random House, taking readers behind the scenes of his journey from TV presenter to documentary maker.
During this exciting In Conversation, Reggie will discuss all of this and more.
