Sir John Tusa gave a virtuoso performance in his Polis dialogue on the state of arts journalism. In conversation with Rosie Millard and an audience of media and culture folk at the London College of Communication he trumpeted various blasts at news coverage of the arts which struck a chord with many who also fear that cultural journalism is currently rather flat (that’s enough musical metaphors – ed). This is a man that both journos and arty types should listen to. He was a founding presenter of Newsnight, boss of the BBC World Service and the chief of the Barbican centre, turning it in to one of Europe’s leading arts venues.
