The late Ivor Yorke has enjoyed a wealth of experience to pass on to aspiring broadcast journalists, having spent more than 20 years as a writer, reporter, producer and editor, before becoming Head of Journalist Training, BBC News and Current Affairs. He was also a freelance training consultant. He is the author of Television News (now in its third edition) and co-author with the late Bernard Hesketh of An Introduction to ENG, also published by Focal Press.

Reviews:

'This is a short, well-constructed book which is of as much value to the interviewed as to the interviewer. It is practical and down-to-earth ('keep off the gin, and stick to the tonic') and delightfully easy to read.'
British Journal of Educational Technology.

' Easy to read guide to the skills needed to become a successful TV
reporter.'
