The BBC’s Dougal Shaw gives a masterclass on mobile journalism

Dougal Shaw

We’re were delighted when Dougal Shaw accepted our invitation to give an online masterclass on Thursday 22 October. 

Dougal specialises in Mojo – which means ‘mobile journalism’. For the past five years he has filmed all of his reports for BBC News on his phone. These reports run on television as well as the BBC News website, app, and social media accounts. His stories have appeared on BBC Breakfast, the One O Clock News, The News Channel, BBC London and BBC World News.

In his masterclass, Dougal explained about how you can film news reports on your phone, what kit you need, and why this can give you all kinds of advantages as an aspiring journalist.

We are hugely grateful to Dougal for volunteering his time for us.
