How to Broadcast your Research: Media Training for Historians
Dr Eliza Filby
In this course, you will be introduced to how 24 hour news broadcasting operates (both domestic and international), how to pitch your ideas, how to get producers interested in you and your research. You will also be guided through the broadcasting process; instructed on how to relax, talk and walk in front of a camera and microphone. All participants work on a potential pitch for a TV programme on which they will receive individual feedback. They are also screen tested as well as radio interviewed and receive a copy of these recordings. Each participant will also receive a course guide on completing the course.
