The aim of this module is to allow students to develop their broadcast presentation skills to an advanced level. Working in our news studios and on location, students will deliver live reports, bulletins and programme segments for radio and television output. These techniques will be underpinned by an appreciation of audiences and a deep understanding the production processes required to broadcast with authority, accuracy and clarity.
Building on the presentation and production skills acquired at L4 and L5, students will learn how to compile and present engaging and informative content for live radio and television to an advanced level. They will produce an individual portfolio of output to demonstrate their progression as presenters of news bulletins or programme segments, Q&As and PTCs on location and on set e.g. using green screen. Taught in seminars and workshops, there will be an emphasis on exploring a range of presentation and voicing techniques. These will enable students to develop a natural and confident voice, enhancing the quality and professionalism of each student’s practice, whilst working to strict deadlines and for a range of audiences. Students will also develop a significant understanding of the ethical, legal and health and safety responsibilities when broadcasting live.
