PR and the Broadcast Media Understanding the common ground between the media and the public relations industry. How to identify clearly the boundaries where interests diverge. An overview of radio and television interview techniques. How each forum can be used to align your agenda with that of the interviewer.

Down-the-line and Radio Interviews Specially prepared scenarios teach delegates how to prepare for interviews and then to think on their feet during downthe- line interviews. Mistakes are made in private, where most can be learned from them.

The TV Interview An examination of the particular problems and power of the television interview, both live and recorded. Delegates role-play specially prepared scenarios to give a "live, on-site television interview". Performances are analysed by both the tutor and the group.
