British High Commission to train DD journalists

NEW DELHI: With Star, Sahara, Zee and Aaj Tak announcing the launch of additional news channels, public broadcaster Doordarshan seems to have taken an initiative to spruce up its reportage as well.

The British High Commission, in collaboration with Doordarshan and Thomson Foundation, Cardiff will organize a two-week training programme for Doordarshan journalists in Delhi next week(13-24 January) and for Doordarshan journalists in Bangalore from 27January 2003 to 7 February 2003.

The training is scheduled to be a professional orientation to mid-career Doordarshan journalists including news producers, correspondents and editors, according to a press release. The course will be conducted by two broadcast journalism experts from Thomson Foundation and will cover the entire array of broadcast journalism and will focus on 'hands on' training through assignments in TV reporting and production, it adds.

The courses are part of the commitment of the British High Commission in India to organise training programmes for Indian journalists from all streams of media. In 2002, Indian print journalists and Indian Information Service Officers received a similar training at the Indian Institute of Mass Communication. The High Commission has also organised a training course in the North-East for young journalists from the region and Bhutan.

The Thomson Foundation was established in 1962 by late Lord Thomson of Fleet to improve media standards around the world. In the past 30 years, more than 2,000 journalists, broadcasters, managers and engineers from more than 100 countries have completed advanced training courses in the UK. Thousands more have benefited from in-country training.
