Storytelling (with BBC Radio 4’s ‘Beyond Today’ Editor, John Shields)

October 15, 2019

Good journalism requires the ability to tell a story that captures the attention of its audience. And there are lots of great examples of good radio and audio storytelling out there now, using journalistic techniques and with qualified journalists guiding the listeners through the process. In this episode we're talking with Editor of BBC Radio 4's Beyond Today podcast, John Shields. We discuss the ingredients of good storytelling, and John gives great advice for budding storytellers. Terry is joined in the studio by Broadcast Journalism student Karolina Komada.

Fantastic Noise is a podcast about making radio. Recorded in the Radio LaB 97.1FM studios at the University of Bedfordshire. Produced and presented by Terry Lee.
