Komla Dumor tells of the pride surrounding African football, Lyse Doucet talks about the immediate aftermath of a car bomb, Laura Trevelyn describes natures force during hurricanes and David Shuckman speaks of the majesty of a space rocket taking off. All ads share the same thing - insight that only a BBC journalist living the story can share.

There is also a substantial digital element to the campaign that follow the lead of the television creative and offers users an added layer of interactivity. In addition, there will also be interactive press ads, digital out of home ads and experiential activity.

BBC Global News Ltd sales and marketing director Chris Davies said, “Our correspondents and presenters live through the most amazing, terrifying, and sometimes life-changing moments so that they can bring these experiences directly to our audiences. Who better then to be the focus of both our brand campaign and of our marketing efforts. Our journalists often put themselves in danger to tell us the real story and as they live the story, so do we”.

The TV ads were directed by Kyle Cooper and all display his trademark use of detail, texture and atmosphere.
