The book Playing at Politics is about the heated race for the presidency of the prestigious Oxford Union. The author of this book, Dr Fiona Graham, has now made a documentary including behind-the-scenes footage gathered during the original filming. The Oxford Union is a training ground for British politicians and has produced some of the greatest names in British politics. Playing at Politics is currently being shown at film festivals around the world. Dr Graham will be attending the showing on 26th, and a Q&A session is scheduled after the preview.

A buffet dinner will be served between 18:30 and 19:50, and the film screening will begin at 20:00. Tickets for drinks may be purchased at FCCJ’s front desk (please state that you are a member of C&O). Places for the buffet and screening must be reserved in advance, but it is possible to register for just one (presumably the preview!), rather than both. Please call FCCJ’s front desk (and not C&O) on 03-3211-3161 to make reservations. You will be liable for the full buffet charge if you cancel a reservation less than 24 hours in advance.
Information is also attached about a preview of Fiona Graham’s film about the Oxford Union, Playing at Politics, which is to be screened at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan on 26th April. Applications to attend this event should be addressed directly to FCCJ.
