MIPCOM Picks 2009 – Journos

Okay, writing for a trade doesn't necessarily put you in harm's way (unless you count the risks incurred from dodgy take-out on press nights). But we at realscreen can certainly appreciate the daring-do of our journalistic comrades who take to war zones and volatile flashpoints like flies to fruit.

Okay, writing for a trade doesn’t necessarily put you in harm’s way (unless you count the risks incurred from dodgy take-out on press nights). But we at realscreen can certainly appreciate the daring-do of our journalistic comrades who take to war zones and volatile flashpoints like flies to fruit. This series examines the lives and work of five Australian journalists working around the world for a variety of outlets. Ranging from 23-year-old Sophie McNeil, based in Beirut and working for SBS Dateline, to 43-year-old Luke Hunt, who left his post at Agence France-Presse to embark on a globe-trotting freelance career, we see the highs and lows, and the thrills and frustrations behind the stories that shape the news. Now, if SBS is looking for journos to spotlight for the next series, it knows where to find us’
