BBC journalists reflect on the nature of war reporting

July 19, 2011

BBC World Affairs Producer Stuart Hughes recently gave a talk on war reporting to a summer school at the London School of Economics. He has uploaded his slides and videos onto YouTube.

Inevitably there are a few slides which won’t mean much without the benefit of Hughes’s words overlaid but he has included several interviews with BBC correspondents discussing the nature of war reporting.

He speaks to Allan Little about eyewitness reporting, discusses the term ‘war correspondent’ with Caroline Hawley and hears Caroline Wyatt’s views on embedding with the military. 

Well worth taking a look…
