So much reconstruction, so little affordable housing

With the borough of Wandsworth constructing unaffordable housing can Labour be residents saving grace in the local elections? By Isla Russell, journalism student London is a city of constant regeneration. Buildings are endlessly being torn down only to be built back-up again in more extravagant and costly ways. Wandsworth is just one borough of London…

Week seven live show review

I found this week particularly challenging in terms of filming the VT as I was working alone the majority of the time.     After deciding before Wednesday’s lesson that I really wanted to do a VT package on International Women’s Day (Thursday) I approached my group to ask if they would be available to…

Week 6 live show review

This week’s live show did not go as smoothly as previous shows have, however, there were some ambitious ideas trialled that should be commended. After reading an article in the Guardian about sex education apps I pitched the idea to my group to base our VT on exploring these apps and how useful they are.…

Week 1 live show review

I was particularly proud of how our first live show went. As director of the show and editor of my VT team, I took a very leading role this week and believe that my hard work paid off. This week my VT team was assigned e-sports. I found a story about a new e-sports play…

Week 10 live show review

This week I was ill on Monday so didn’t make it to the first VT meeting. Instead I was given all of the information via my VT teams slack group chat. We were doing an E-sports VT this week which was going to be about loot boxes, specifically in the new Star Wars Battlefront 2…

“A smaller fat”

I was surrounded by antique pieces of furniture while business men in…

Week 8 live show review

This week I was the editor of my VT package, which meant I was the leader of my group. As always, we began the week with a VT meeting on Monday where we delegated roles and decided on a story for our package. I was immediately drawn to the Church of England news report that…

Live show notes week 7

This week I personally found the live shows quite difficult. Admittedly this is down to me being absent from the Monday briefing due to illness, and this therefore made the rest of the week harder for me to catch up with. Due to me, and 2 other members of my VT team, being ill for…

Bloody Mary anyone?

Every women’s worst time of the month has now turned into their best, Isla Russell reports Every month, for one week and one week only, a woman will experience blood, cramps, cravings, and pain. It’s the worst time of the month for them; but not in Israel. Thanks to ‘Bloody Hour’ at The Anna Loulou…

Week 5 live show evaluation

In the same manner as last week we started planning for the live shows on Monday with a meeting between all the VT teams. After a look at the news that day I found an article in the Evening Standard about a woman who eats with only £5 a week. She uses apps that offer…
