Tom Speight

Former BBC Radio Cumbria news editor and 5 Live producer Tom Speight (pictured left) is now responsible for training across the BBC's local radio stations in England.

Here he provides an introduction to a film made throwing light on how BBC Radio York delivers radio news to the region.

Delivering original journalism is never easy - especially when your patch is, on paper at least, a bit quiet.

So, when BBC Radio York, covering North Yorkshire, took the Gillard award in 2011 for doing just that, it felt like it was time to get under the bonnet of their news operation to discover just what makes it tick.

The BBC College of Journalism provides online and face to face learning for BBC journalists, by BBC journalists. In my role, I try to spread good practice around the BBC's local radio stations in England. This film is trying to do just that.
