A Hack's Progress is a Documentary programme.


A Hack's Progress

Journalist and author Jonathan Freedland looks at how journalists and newspapers have been depicted in fiction, from the advent of the mass popular press to the present day. In uncovering many forgotten fictions, he explores the bare-knuckled literary combat conducted by writers contesting the disputed boundaries between literature and journalism. Contributors include Simon Jenkins, Kelvin McKenzie, Francine Stock, Hadley Freeman, and S Town producer Brian Reed.
