Is conventional journalism becoming a thing of the past? That’s one of the questions posed in this week’s programme, which looks at how citizen journalism is helping programme makers rise to the challenge of getting news stories and perspectives from remote communities around the world.
BBC Hausa’s Jamilah Tangaza and Your Story’s project manager, Nina Robinson discuss their approaches to using non-professional reporters to help generate stories. Plus, Ivor Gaber, professor of political campaigning and reporting at City University in London, assesses the implications for objective, authoritative and balanced reporting.
This week’s programme also features listeners views of Yiddish: A Struggle for Survival, Indonesian Journeys and The Interview.
