Celebrate World Press Freedom Day with a riveting discussion between BBC Journalist Alan Johnston and Host of CBC's The Current, Anna Maria Tremonti.

On March 12, 2007, BBC Reporter Alan Johnston was kidnapped by a group of Palestinian militants while on assignment in Gaza. His plight was monitored around the world and there were rallies urging his release in major cities, including Toronto. After 114 days of captivity he was finally freed. This is his only public appearance in Canada. Alan will also take questions from the audience.
