Edinburgh and Glasgow, 26-28 April 2013

The red light comes on and you’re live on air to millions of listeners. That’s the experience replicated in this immersive three-day media course hosted by the Beltane Public Engagement Network. The radio show might be just a simulation but for that added touch of reality, you’re installed in one of the state of the art studios at the BBC’s Pacific Quay Glasgow headquarters.

Also on the workshop, you explore the newsgathering process, producing video and radio reports for the evening news. There will be nowhere to hide as you work in groups filming, scripting and editing to tight deadlines. Last but certainly not least, you’ll learn what makes a great media story.

This course is open to academic and research staff and PhD students working on any subject. The attendance fee helps to cover running costs and includes lunch and refreshments at breaks.

£150 (Beltane Network universities) or £400 (other institutions)
