Welcome to my elective blog. Based on my work done over six month in 2011 I elected to work on a project with children. I was commissioned by The Children's Radio Foundation to put together a few packages for two of their show. I then went about producing four packages over a number of weeks. Two packages were aired on a show about literacy and another two on a show about heritage.

My work can be found on Children's Radio Foundation blog site.

Learning to learn

For the past two weeks I’ve been working on two packages for the Heritage day show for the Children’s Radio Foundation. It seems like things always go a little pear shaped when it comes to getting my stories but I had such fun getting to know the two young ladies I worked with that the trouble was all worth it.

Heard on the radio

This week has been a slow week for me. I spent most of it editing the two packages I’ve been working on for the literacy show. It’s all come to an end with the interviewing last week, but I think that through listening through all the interviews again and editing, I’ve actually realised how much I’ve learned from both interviews.

Decisions, decisions!

This week has been a long one with things not going as well as I had hoped but it has all eventually come together. I'm at the end of the week and thinking about how I can make the next two weeks different  and how I could make them count. First i'm taking stock of what has happened over the week.

The sensitive journalist

I have been working on my first package for the Children’s Radio Foundation this past week. My focus has been on blindness and literacy. I was really hesitant about this story because I have only ever had two small encounters with blind people and I felt under prepared to do a full on interview with a blind person. With that said, I knew how important this story was and so it is important for me to do it as well as I can.
