About the Event

7.30pm to 10.30pm, Tuesday 9 April 2024

The North East London Group would like to invite you to their April Club Night.

Bill Hamilton hails from Dundee and has enjoyed a 60-year career as a journalist and broadcaster. He moved to London in 1979 and served successively as Home Affairs, Foreign Affairs and Special Correspondent with BBC Television News.

His role, some of which he will be talking about, took him to some of the worst trouble spots at home and abroad – from arctic winter in Scotland (where he took part in the extraordinary rescue of snowbound train passengers) to inner-city riots in Brixton and Toxteth; from IRA bombs in Brighton and London to a tragic war in Lebanon, the terrible consequences of HIV/AIDS in Africa, the Soviet Union’s nuclear testing programme in Kazakhstan and the plight of dying and neglected children in Stalinist Albania.

Bill is also a football referee and is now officiating in his 65th season having refereed over 2,000 matches.

All welcome!
