Overview

Television News is a straightforward account of the editorial and production processes used by journalists to bring television news to the viewer. It is an invaluable text for students in journalism courses, print and radio journalists moving into television and TV journalists wishing to update their knowledge. Formerly The Technique of Television News, this third edition is almost completely rewritten with new illustrations to take account of developments from both a technological and an editorial perspective. It covers a wide range of techniques including the writing and construction of TV news reports, and leads the reader through basic journalistic skills to a detailed description of how a typical newscast is transmitted. It has a factual and logical approach and the wealth of new material includes: non-linear editing, the computerised news room, bi-media working, multi-skilling, what employers want, and training and recruitment.

Audience: Students and lecturers on media and journalism courses, print and radio journalists moving into television and television journalists wishing to update their knowledge.
