Tools for livecovering events & incidents

Paul Bradshaw teaches the MA in Online Journalism at Birmingham City University, and is also responsible for a number of journalism projects and initiatives. Here we talk to him about the importance of being prepared to cover live events, including knowing the most appropriate tools to be using, and how to apply them sensitively in each context. These issues are discussed through various case studies, including the UK general election of 2015 and UK riots of 2011.
