This subject develops the reporting, editing and presentation skills involved in producing and packaging audio and video in an age where on-demand, podcasting and other digital-first methods are changing the nature of radio and TV current news and current affairs journalism. Students study a range of formats to produce, package and re-imagine short and long-form audio and visual journalism. They are encouraged to use and experiment with digital tools and methods of gaining an audience and telling stories. The historical context of current policies, ownership structures and news ecosystems are examined as are the power of individual commercial broadcasters and state-funded organisations. Students explore the editorial and ethical issues that exist in the broadcast environment and develop their own reporting portfolios and ideas for stories and programming.
