This is a promo on behalf of More4 who are screening an exclusive of Erasing David, a compelling new film exploring the dangers of the database state and mass surveillance to our privacy and freedom. I'll be there along with other OK regulars - grab your tickets whilst you still can.

More 4 are proud to invite you to an exclusive screening of ‘Erasing David’ followed by a discussion of the themes with the director, David Bond and private investigators, Duncan Mee and Cameron Gowlett.

Once the bastion of freedom and civil liberties, the UK is now one of the most advanced surveillance societies in the world. This fascinating film follows director, David Bond, as he decides to find out how much private companies and the government know about him by putting himself under surveillance and attempting to disappear. Leaving his pregnant wife and young child behind, he is tracked by two private investigators across the database state on a chilling journey that forces him to contemplate the meaning of privacy – and the loss of it.

Date: 27th April 2010  

Time: 6.15pm for a 6.30pm screening

Venue: The Royal Society of Arts, 8 John Adam St, London, WC2N 6EZ

If you  wish to attend please email [email protected] or call 0207 306 5640 and quote "openDemocracy".

‘Erasing David’ will be shown as part of the More4 documentary strand ‘True Stories’, broadcast every Tuesday at 10pm.

 

Who's getting rich from COVID-19?

Boris Johnson's government stands accused of 'COVID cronyism', after handing out staggering sums of money to controversial private firms to fight COVID-19. Often the terms of these deals are kept secret, with no value-for-money checks or penalties for repeated failures which cost lives. And many major contracts have gone directly to key Tory donors and allies – without competition.

As COVID rates across the country surge, how can we hold our leaders accountable? Meet the lawyers, journalists and politicians leading the charge in our free live discussion on Thursday 1 October at 5pm UK time.
