About this Unit
In 2010 this unit replaced by 101743 - Mobile Media. This unit is designed to introduce students to the basics of reporting for television news and information programs. Students will analyse the kinds of stories commonly covered by television news and information programs and undertake their own projects. Students will also analyse the construction and function of television news and information programs within the broader media environment. Students will prepare prepackaged material and also present reports or 'location hostings' from outside the studio to be linked back to central control.
