Win a free place at the 11KBW Information Law Conference 2024!

We are delighted to announce that our new Panopticon Podcast will be launching tomorrow – on 22 November 2023.  Leading ITM silk and Panopticon stalwart Anya Proops KC gives me (Leo Davidson) the rundown on the new Online Safety regime and reveals what people in Chambers call me behind my back, all in 30 minutes.

But that’s not all!  Some weeks ago, when the podcast was still just a twinkle in my ear, colleagues challenged me to sneak a reference to the classic Christmas film, Die Hard, into the first episode.  So I did – and now the challenge goes out to listeners: what and where is it?

Hidden in plain sound somewhere in the episode is a reference to a line of Alan-Rickman-as-Hans-Gruber dialogue (not quite an exact quotation).  The first person to spot it and email the reference and time-stamp to will win a free place at the 11KBW Information Law Conference 2024 (date TBA).

Any ideas for things to sneak into Episode 2 can be emailed to the same address…

  2. The sender of said email (“Winner”) may nominate, within 28 days of being notified that they are the Winner, any individual (“Delegate”) to attend the 11KBW Information Law Conference 2024 free of charge. 11KBW may agree to accept a nomination after this period, or change the nominated Delegate at any time, at its sole discretion.
