TRIAL: BBC journalism library

Trial from 4/23/2010 – 5/23/2010

Over its 80-year history, the BBC has earned an unmatched, global reputation for its journalism. For the very first time, the learning and development materials created for its journalists are being made available outside the BBC. The BBC College of Journalism website includes 1,700 content pages, hundreds of videos, audio clips, discussion pages, and interactive modules covering every aspect of TV, radio, and online journalism. Much of the material features BBC TV reporters, anchors, and hosts known around the world. The subjects covered range from craft skills (such as writing or directing video) to subject briefings on critical events and topics such as climate change and the conflict in the Middle East, to the many ethical issues now facing journalists. The site is continuously updated, its coverage driven by the practical needs of BBC journalists around the world, as well as current events in the news.
