Sue Lloyd-Roberts's prompt cards for her speech, 'A report from a human rights reporter'.

In 2016, Nick Guthrie kindly donated to the College the papers of his wife, our alumna and prominent journalist and human rights campaigner Sue Lloyd-Roberts MBE [History and Modern Languages, 1970]. These fascinating documents, which are currently being catalogued, range from Sue’s school reports at Cheltenham Ladies College to correspondence with the BBC and ITN, newspaper article cuttings, prompt cards and transcripts for speeches and early family photographs. 

The cards pictured were prepared for a speech entitled ' A report from a human rights reporter' given on 1st April 2003. [PP 14 C/2]

Watch the inaugural Sue Lloyd-Roberts Memorial Lecture, given by Lord Hall of Birkenhead (Director General of the BBC) on 26 April 2017  here.
