In a HARDtalk interview broadcast on 21st August, Stephen Sackur talks to the editor of The Independent newspaper, Roger Alton.
These are the grim headlines in the global newspaper business: sales are down, advertising is shifting to the internet, and the public doesn't trust much of what it reads in the papers.
Roger Alton is well used to the challenges of print journalism.

Stephen Sackur asks him if newspapers are destined for extinction in the digital media age.
