Television on returnees
IMCK has welcomed television journalists in her offices in Erbil and Sulaymaniyah over the past 4 days. Together with STATT we organized two workshops on making TV news and developing stories.
The main subject was illegal emigration, and people returning home to live in the KRG. Because of this both workshops started off with a presentation from STATT's Goran Sabah in the morning.
After that international trainer Paul Phillips took over. Phillips trains BBC news editors with Paul Phillips Media, he was until recently head of News Training at the BBC Academy and a former television news editor.
Besides helping the journalists gain more awareness of the subject of illegal emigration and to improve the broadcast journalism skills, Phillips also talks about the challenges in presenting positive stories for TV news.
