Live from Africa: A Handbook for African Radio Journalists

The handbook reviews reporting on general, political and human rights issues. It has sections on location recording and computer based audio editing. It provides guidance on safety and security and sensitive reporting in conflict areas, as well as libel issues. Developed out of the radio journalism workshops that were run as part of IWPR's Uganda Radio Network project, it also reviews the particular requirements for reporting for IWPR.

Each chapter provides exercises, discussion sections and further references. The handbook can either be used in coordination with an international trainer or can be worked through on its own.
