In a changed broadcasting environment, newcomers to television journalism are finding themselves entering a world in which an empathy with technology is as important as a way with words.

Television News is a straight forward account of the editorial and production processes used by journalists to bring television news to the viewer. It is an invaluable text for students on journalism courses, print and radio journalists moving into television and TV journalists wishing to update their their knowledge.

Formerly The Technique of Television News, this third edition is almost completely rewritten with new illustrations to take account of developments from both a technological and editorial perspective. It covers a wide range of techniques including the writing and construction of TV news reports, and leads the reader through basic journalistic skills to a detailed description of how a typical newscast is transmitted. It has a factual and logical approach and the wealth of new material includes:
* non-linear editing
* the computerised news room
* bi-media working
* multi-skilling
* what employers want
* training and recruitment

Ivor Yorke was the former Head of BBC Journalistic Training and Vice-Chairman of the National Council for the Training of Broadcast Journalists. He has also written Basic TV Reporting and is co-author of An Introduction to Eng, both published by Focal Press
