Scottish Referendum

Listen in pop-out player

How much coverage is the Scottish independence referendum getting on the World Service – an Australian listener says it is of great interest for the rest of the world. We hear from the editor of The Newsroom about recent coverage and plans to increase it as the date for the referendum in September draws nearer. Plus, on World Press Freedom Day, Rajan Datar asks if events like the trial of Al Jazeera journalists in Egypt suggest that media freedom is under increasing pressure – and hears about plans for a day to provide support for journalists threatened and killed doing their work.
