Folkestone Book Festival: Live Broadcasting Workshop

Sorry, this event has sold out

What is ‘live broadcasting’? How do you prepare for it? Who can do it? What makes a good live broadcast? What can go wrong or worse, be a disaster? How do they make it look or sound so easy? Could you be a live broadcaster, for money? Audrey Green Oakes’ workshop will explore the different forms of live broadcasting, explain what is going on behind the scenes and show you how to prepare yourself if you ever have to ‘go live’.

Audrey Green Oakes has worked in broadcasting for most of her career. Starting as a radio reporter in Scotland she soon discovered that decision-making was being done ‘behind the scenes’ and moved into Producer and Exec Producer roles in London on national BBC Radio and TV news and documentaries. She won an award in 2015 for producing films showing asylum seekers risking their lives crossing the Channel hidden under lorries. She’s worked on Live Broadcasts abroad and in the UK including on events, elections and disasters.

Live Broadcasting Workshop, 11am–12.45pm
