This Autumn marks ITN’s 65th anniversary on air. At this pivotal moment in our world and industry’s history, we're hosting a ten-week festival of news and content to provoke debate about the future of journalism and TV production. Each week new features, clips and columns from ITN's on- and off-screen talent, as well as industry figures, will ask what we can learn from our experience and look at the opportunities for the next generation of journalists and content creators.

Be part of the conversation.
