» Reporting on floods – at home or abroad

What’s the difference between the story of a flood told by a reporter and that told by someone who was in it?

That was one of the questions explored in a seminar held at the University of Glamorgan’s Atrium in Cardiff this week. It was part of a series on the theme ‘Learning to Live with Water: Flood histories, Environmental Change, Remembrance and Resilience’ and brought together (among others) geographers, story-tellers, academics, artists, emergency planners and poets.

As a contribution, I drew the participants’ attention to the excellent resources and discussion at the DART Center for Journalism & Trauma – especially the current material on the Japanese earthquake and tsunami (including detailed advice on all the challenges facing reporters in such a situation).

Torn Apart – Reporting Heartbreak
Particularly interesting for journalists – and journalism students – is this response of a TV producer who was accused of exploiting a family who lost a child in the Queensland floods. It tells us a lot about the positive impact of good journalism – which does exist!

The Flood Histories project is based at the University of Gloucester and Glamorgan’s George Ewart Evans Centre for Storytelling.

» Are you listening to Exposure Radio?

For the next two weeks, students at the Atrium in Cardiff will be broadcasting from morning to night as part of an innovative, web-based radio project.

Exposure Radio is being run by third-year radio students and post-graduates specialising in multiplatform radio and interactive journalism.

The station is ‘on the air’ from 10 to 5, Monday to Friday, with music shows, topical features, documentaries, drama and news. Supervised by staff from Media, Culture & Journalism, the students are taking full responsibility for production, presentation and the management of the station.

The story was covered for the Guardian by one of the MA students involved with the website.

As part of the project, the team have been awarded an ‘innovation in learning and teaching’ grant to experiment with live-blogging on the site and investigate the potential of social networking to enhance the output and impact of community radio stations in Wales.
