Development in the news
Media coverage of development issues is about to step into the spotlight.
On 7 November the International Broadcasting Trust will launch its report, Connecting to the world – how global campaigners can be more effective in engaging online audiences, "the first substantive piece of research to be published in the UK which looks at how NGOs and global campaigners communicate online and how audiences respond to these messages."
November also sees two other initiatives involving the media and development.
The first is a series of discussions for the annual OneWorld Media Week (Transforming the Media Landscape: Emerging Forms of Journalism in Post-Authoritarian States; One World Media Student Showcase; Connecting to the World; Where Does Development Belong in the Modern Media Landscape? and a screening and discussion about lessons to be drawn from the film 5 Broken Cameras).
The second initiative is a BBC documentary series that asks, Why Poverty? The BBC, and more than 70 other broadcasters around the world, will show the same eight films in 180 countries. The films post the question why, in the 21st century, a billion people still live in poverty.
