BBC World Service can offer citizens equipment and training for Your
Story project
Posted: 12/03/09 By: Judith Townend

Your Story is the BBC World Service's citizen journalism project,
running since June 2008. Anyone can send in ideas for stories and news
reports, or personal stories, photos, audio and video.

Nina Robinson, a senior broadcast journalist at the BBC World Service,
runs the project and works with individuals to pursue report ideas and
will provide them with recording equipment, and training and advice,
she says. Robinson then edits material received.

Some of it ends up on the blog and some of it ends up on air: on
Newshour, The World Today, Europe Today, World Update and Outlook.
Other bits are featured online.

"We've had contributors from all over the world," Robinson tells
Journalism.co.uk. "Most of them have a burning issue they care about
and want to research it further by doing a report on it," she says.

For example, there was 19 year old Ricardo from a favela in Brazil on
living with violence; David Urbina who is HIV positive and covered an
AIDS conference in Mexico; Xuanxuan, a student who reported from the
Beijing Olympics; and a group of British teenage mothers who discussed
issues on World Contraception Day.

[..]

"It's all about communicating with people. I see it a bit as a
democratisation of the news process. Rather than the BBC as a news
organisation dictating the news agenda, we're listening to what people
are telling us, taking in their opinions, thoughts, sometimes
eyewitness accounts - whether they be in the form of photos, videos,
or opinion pieces."

Personal highlights for Robinson include the time she worked with
Baktash Siawash in Afghanistan - reporting on a school girl whose face
was splashed with acid by the Taliban;
<http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/interact/2008/12/081211_yourstory_afghanacid.shtml>
and when she covered Obama's inauguration, gathering 'grassroots
perspectives'.
<http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/interact/2009/01/090113_yourstory_obama.shtml>
Robinson also flags up a series of reports from citizen journalists on the
economy in Detroit.
<http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/interact/2009/02/090227_yourstorydetroiteconomy.shtml>
See the Your Story photos of Detroit on flickr
<http://www.flickr.com/photos/bbcworldservice/sets/72157612868942751/>


Now, the team is working to build the blog to incorporate further with
the World Have Your Say (WHYS) blog community.
http://worldhaveyoursay.wordpress.com/2009/03/02/citizen-journalism-on-whys/


"Eventually we might have citizen journalists in every country in the
world, someone who will be available to give us an on the ground
personal view if there's a relevant news event, especially in those
hard to reach areas where we do not always have reporters - Riyadh,
Darfur, Gaza, for example," she says.

"We are continuing to send out equipment," she adds. Videos, such as
the promotional one at this link, are intended to build exposure.
http://www.vimeo.com/2771765

[...]

Twitter is another new focus for the project - a recent blog post
described Robinson's enthusiasm for the project. "I'm trying to do
more on Twitter - I'm a convert and excited about the possibilities it
offers to reach out to a wider community."

The project works alongside other BBC projects, she says. "It fits
into other world service news programmes as part of the multimedia hub
here in news and current affairs. I offer material to programmes to
run and also offer ideas for debate and interview, so there's a lot of
communication going on. They are also asking me to get equipment to
certain people they think would make good citizen journalists."

Your Story
<http://www.flickr.com/photos/bbcworldservice/collections/72157608617769756/>

Your Story is a fast-developing multimedia website offering a unique place
for BBC World Service listeners and potential citizen journalists to
contribute directly to our output.

You can send us your photos, video and ideas for news stories. If you
think you would like to be one of our citizen journalists we will try and
work with you to conduct interviews and provide recording equipment,
advice and support to get your voices onto the radio and broadcast around
the world.

To find out more please visit the website
http://www.bbcworldservice.com/yourstory and also have a look at the
photos in this Your Story flickr collection to look at what other people
have already done for us.

Posted by: "George Lessard" media@web.net themediamentor
Date: Sun Mar 15, 2009 2:35 pm ((PDT))

Pakistan's airwaves: On militant turf, Radio Khyber offers a ...
"Until Radio Khyber started news reporting, the FM mullahs were winning the
dial wars," says Aurangzaib Khan, the manager of Media Development at
Internews Pakistan in Peshawar, an international nonprofit that trains
radio journalists ...
<http://www.csmonitor.com/2009/0313/p01s01-wosc.html>

[excerpt]

Peshawar, Pakistan - Kishwar yanks at her veil, caught in the sound
equipment of a cramped radio production studio, and pins it back. "It's
hard to be the voice of anything with all this cloth on my face," she
jokes, alluding to her station's tag line, "The Voice of Khyber."

Kishwar, who, like others in this story, asked to have her last name
withheld for security, is one of 15 reporters for Radio Khyber, a rare
nonextremist station broadcasting in the town of Jamrud, in the militant
stronghold of Pakistan's northwestern tribal areas. Airwaves in this
region are filled with the illegal broadcasts of "FM mullahs" preaching
about "holy war" and recruiting fighters.

Radio Khyber, launched in 2006 with government support, provides an
alternative to the hard-line clerics with its medley of local news, talk
shows, and music. But it treads carefully, trying to avoid backlash from
either the militants – who criticize the playing of music – or the
Pakistani government, which dislikes its news coverage in this sensitive
region.

PARTENARIAT ENRS-RADIOS INTERCOMMUNAUTAIRES DE FRANCE
5 accords d'échange de programmes signés
15 Mars 2009 - Page : 6
Lu 62 fois

http://www.lexpressiondz.com/article/2/2009-03-15/61606.html

L'Entreprise nationale de radio sonore (Enrs) a signé cinq accords avec des
radios intercommunautaires de Lyon et de Paris pour un échange de programmes
dans le but de diversifier et d'enrichir les contenus de leurs grilles. Ces
accords ont été signés, jeudi dernier à Lyon, avec la radio communautaire
Salam et la radio intercommunautaire Trait d'union.
La même procédure a été menée, ces vendredi et samedi à Paris, avec Radio
France Maghreb, Beur FM et Radio Soleil. «*Ces accords permettent de
diversifier l'offre de nos Radios respectives et de renforcer le lien de la
communauté nationale vivant en France avec le pays natal*», a expliqué à
l'APS le directeur général de l'Enrs, M.Tewfik Khelladi.
«*Ces échanges débuteront très prochainement. L'Enrs mettra à la disposition
de nos partenaires des contenus très diversifiés touchant la culture,
l'éducation, la religion, l'histoire, la découverte et la connaissance des
villes algériennes ainsi que des programmes distractifs*», a encore précisé
M.Khelladi, ajoutant que «*des interconnexions et des duplex seront
effectués lors des fêtes religieuses et autres grands événements pour
permettre aux auditeurs de la communauté algérienne d'être en contact avec
leurs familles par le biais de la radio*».
Grâce à ces Radios-partenaires, dont certaines couvrent presque la totalité
du territoire français, totalisant près d'un million et demi d'auditeurs,
l'Enrs sera présente dans les programmes de ces médias par le biais des
contenus qu'elle mettra à leur disposition.
Le DG de l'Enrs avait signé, vendredi, un accord-cadre avec l'Institut
français de l'audiovisuel (INA) sur la formation des personnels chargés de
la numérisation, l'un des vastes chantiers que lance la Radio nationale.
Un lot de copies de documents sonores totalisant 200 heures de programmes a
été remis au DG de l'Enrs à cette occasion.

6. Le nouvel élan des langues indiennes

<
http://www.lemonde.fr/livres/article/2009/03/12/le-nouvel-elan-des-langues-indiennes_1166900_3260.html
>

Si vous mangez des *ahuacatl* (avocats) ou des *tomatl* (tomates) en
grignotant des *cacahuatl* (cacahuètes), le tout arrosé d'une tasse de *
xocolatl* (chocolat), vous pratiquez le nahuatl sans le savoir ! Le nahuatl
("parole claire, harmonieuse") reste bien vivant dans la partie orientale du
Mexique. Avec 1,5 million de locuteurs, il s'agit de la langue indigène la
plus répandue dans le pays, notamment à Mexico : c'était aussi celle des
Aztèques, et son enseignement vient d'être mis à l'honneur dans certaines
écoles par la municipalité de gauche de la capitale.

Mais c'est loin d'être la seule. Maya, zapotèque, mixtèque, otomi, tzotzil,
tzeltal, purépécha, raramuri - au total, 68 langues indiennes sont encore
parlées au Mexique par quelque 4 millions de personnes, au moins au sein de
la famille et au cours de rituels religieux. Les programmes des centaines de
radios communautaires s'avèrent aussi très importants pour maintenir cette
vitalité linguistique, dans des régions d'accès souvent difficile.* "Une
jeune génération d'écrivains écrit aujourd'hui en mazatèque*, explique Juan
Gregorio <http://www.lemonde.fr/sujet/dd8b/juan-gregorio.html> Regino
http://www.lemonde.fr/sujet/dd8b/juan-gregorio.html , un poète mazatèque qui
traduit lui-même ses textes en espagnol. *La résurgence de ces langues -
dont beaucoup restent néanmoins menacées de disparition - est l'un des
phénomènes culturels les plus marquants de ces dernières années."*

Dear Colleagues

UNESCO releases Digital archiving of audio content using WINISIS and
Greenstone software: a manual for community radio managers

UNESCO Office in New Delhi has published Digital archiving of audio
content using WINISIS and Greenstone software: a manual for community
radio managers. This self-instructional handbook is aimed at helping
managers of community and FM radio stations, public service broadcasting
agencies and any other organizations that deal with audio files create
prototype archives of digital audio documents.

Free and open source software (FOSS) helps digital inclusion of citizens
in developing countries through easy-to-get and socially useful
applications. UNESCO's information processing tools assist many grassroots
institutions in disseminating information to local communities. Digital
archive of a community radio station can be a knowledge repository
containing collective wisdom of indigenous people, as well as of regional
communities and institutions.

The South Asian sub-region is now at the nascent stage of community radio
development, with the introduction of policy frameworks in India, Nepal
and other countries. Community radio has a great development potential
across the sub-region with ever increasing number of community radio
stations. To maintain an archive of broadcasted contents is a legal
obligation as a self-regulatory mechanism, however many stations are not
equipped for doing this.. Moreover, community radio stations often need to
re-use and re-broadcast many of their archived contents.

This new publication is a reliable manual for digital archiving of
multimedia contents, with special focus on community radio contents. Its
users will find it helpful in their every-day work. The publication has
its genesis in the recommendations and proceedings of two events,
supported by UNESCO: National Consultation on Community Radio for
Practising and Potential Community Radio Operators in India and National
Consultation to Review Community Radio in Nepal, during which community
radio station managers stressed the importance of archiving digital audio
contents.

In line with the needs of the community, the manual guides users in
creating their own archives with stable, free software like WINISIS,
GenISIS and Greenstone. The book also provides the URL addresses from
where this software can be downloaded.

The manual can be downloaded here:

If you want a print copy of this book, please send a request letter to Ms.
Ajitha Vijayan, CI Sector, UNESCO, B5/29, Safdarjung Enclave, New
Delhi-110029; Fax: 011-26713001/2 along with a self-addressed A4 size
envelope.

11. Nepal: Handbook for exiled journalists published
Posted by: "George Lessard" media@web.net themediamentor
Date: Mon Mar 16, 2009 6:36 am ((PDT))

Handbook for exiled journalists published

A new handbook for training journalists in remote and disadvantaged parts
of South Asia is currently being printed in Nepal. It is the brainchild of
T.P. Mishra, founding president of the Bhutan Chapter of the
Bangladesh-based Third World Media Network.

The book was originally aimed at the Bhutanese refugee journalists who
work, unpaid, in the refugee camps in Nepal, but those behind it want it
made available to all journalists working in exile.

Media Helping Media has contributed a chapter on journalism and activism
for the book. In the following question and answer session, we asked T.P.
Mishra to explain his thinking behind the publication.

http://www.mediahelpingmedia.org/content/view/354/1/

Q: How do people living overseas pay for and get hold of a copy?

The book will be kept online, although those browsing the online version
will be able to accessed all the full content. They will have a choice to
either buy the electronic copy or they can buy the hardcopy through Pay
Pal . Once again I request the audience to buy the copy since the fund we
collect would be best-used to promote the public's right to information.

Footnote: T.P Mishra comes from a remote district of Bhutan. He fled the
country for Nepal with his family when he was six years old. He is a
graduate in journalism and mass communication, and has been a refugee
camp-based correspondent for The Bhutan Reporter (TBR) monthly. He is now
chief editor and publisher of TBR, working unpaid. He is also the founding
president of the Bhutan Chapter of the Bangladesh-based Third World Media
Network since 2006.

12. Media Training Resources

Training resources

http://www.mediahelpingmedia.org/content/section/6/234/<http://www.mediahelpingmedia.org/content/section/6/234/>

[image: Training in Kotor, Montenegro]This training section was set up by David
Brewer <http://www.linkedin.com/in/mediaideas> of Media Ideas International
Ltd <http://www.mediaideas.co.uk/> in order to offer ongoing help to media
development clients in transition states, post-conflict countries, and areas
where freedom of expression is under threat.

David had undertaken a number of contracts for media development
organisations but realised that, in some cases, there were no plans to
support the media organisations involved after the projects ended.

He set about writing a number of training modules so that the media
organisations that couldn't afford to pay for further help could still build
their own capacity to survive.

Over time, others joined in and offered existing training modules, or to
write new ones. These have been added to the mix.

More are being added all the time. If you have a training module you would
like to make available, please use the contact us
form<http://www.mediahelpingmedia.org/component/option,com_contact/Itemid,112/>and
let us know.

Also, because many are written on planes, in departure lounges and in
hotels, they may contain typos. The only condition for using these modules
is that if you spot any typos and errors you let us know, and that you
credit Media Helping Media (or the author if it is a module written by a
guest) with a mention and a link.

Listed below are the categories for the training modules.

Sénégal - suspension de deux mois : Oxy-jeunes et Afia FM font les frais

[excerpt]

Deux radios communautaires font les frais de la campagne électorale. Elles
ont été sommées d'arrêter d'émettre pour avoir organisé des émissions
politiques. Le Conseil National de Régulation de l'Audiovisuel (CNRA) a
suspendu les radios Oxy-jeune et Afia FM.

Les radios communautaires Oxy-jeunes FM et Afia Fm sont aphones pour deux
mois. Elles ont été suspendues par le Conseil National de Régulation de
l'Audiovisuel (CNRA) qui a scellé leur émetteur ce samedi 14 mars 2009.
L'organe sénégalais de régulation des médias leur reproche le traitement
de l'information politique alors que leur cahier de charge ne le leur
permet pas. A une semaine de la fin de la campagne électorale, le Conseil
National de Régulation de l'Audiovisuelle (CNRA) sévit. Il a suspendu la
fréquence de deux radios communautaires dont Oxy-jeunes (Pikine) et Afia
Fm (Grand yoff). L'arrêt des programmes de ces stations FM fait suite à
une mise en demeure.
