On this month’s podcast we are looking at Prevent. Prevent is name given to the UK governments Countering Violent Extremism programme. “Prevent is about safeguarding people and communities from the threat of terrorism. Prevent is 1 of the 4 elements of CONTEST, the Government's counter-terrorism strategy. It aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.” (https://www.ltai.info/what-is-prevent/) On the podcast we are joined by two Prevent practitioners Sean Arbuthnot and William Baldet to discuss how it works and the wider context of the programme. WRITING COURSE Writing or producing a military drama like The Last Post or Our Girl? Making an espionage series to rival Spooks? Rossa McPhillips MBE, a former soldier in British military intelligence, is offering a one-day course to writers, directors and producers on the facts about the armed forces, its culture, traditions and how it operates overseas in conflict zones from a first-hand perspective. The course will also open a door on the closed world of the intelligence services. Course participants will get the opportunity to see what the role of an intelligence officer is really like, as they take part in a realistic conflict simulation exercise where they must make quick decisions based on disparate intelligence data to prevent a hypothetical terrorist attack.
