In February, Andrew will be convening a development and pitching session with students for a production of an innovative television programme.
In March, he will be talking about his experiences of television production ‘on the road’ and war reporting, referencing the three years he spent making 30 Newsnight films for the BBC in the former Yugoslavia. He will be looking at how mainstream media responded and evolved in its approach to war reporting, including the practicalities of coverage, such as filming safely, editing on the ground, getting reports back to the UK, and ‘telling the truth’ in terms of editorial integrity and independence. Andrew has also lectured on the BBC’s Editorial Values. He will be highlighting key editorial issues, and also touching on social media and the era of ‘fake news’.
