The Golden Pin

Reading Time:

Found an interesting site about videojournalism (their term not mine) by German VJ Sabine Streich called [](

Amongst the links is a set of interviews with Mike Kraus, a BBC journalist, who has a nice little series on BBC London called the Golden Pin.

Streich has some nice interviews with Kraus and you can watch an episode of the Golden pin ( in flash format here rather than the clunky RM format on the BBC)
