Unseen: Reggie Yates in Conversation
Award-winning documentarian and broadcaster, Reggie, presents his new book, Unseen, in 4 major UK cities taking us behind the scenes of his documentary journey
At the forefront of the new generation of immersive documentary journalism, Reggie has travelled to some of the most dangerous and isolated environments in the world, questioning extreme ideologies and providing authentic commentary on a wide range of hard-hitting social issues.
Join Reggie this Autumn when he will be discussing his first book, Unseen: My Journey, which takes us behind the scenes of his story so far. From DJ and TV host to investigative broadcaster, Reggie has become the face of fearless documentary filmmaking for the Y Generation, examining everything from gun crime in Chicago, being LGBTQ in Russia, to life as a refugee in Iraq.
Initially resistant to documentary making and convinced his point of view as a young, black working-class man with a history in music and entertainment would not make his films credible, Reggie has turned the very thing he once saw as a weakness into his strength on camera: being the eye of the everyman and the voice of the audience.
Reggie will be in conversation with Clara Amfo in London, Julie Adenuga in Brighton and Edith Bowman in Norwich.
