A day long workshop aimed at people hoping to make use of broadcast media opportunities for the first time. This workshop covers what makes the broadcast media special, preparation for interviews, interview technique and handling challenging interviews. The workshop offers opportunities for delegates to undertake interviews themselves which are recorded with digital audio and video equipment for playback.
