Behind the Screens “News Reporting from Ukraine”


News coverage from Ukraine hasn’t always been of the highest quality (in fact most foreign media coverage has been pretty poor), so I was interested to see this event take place in Brussels.

Unfortunately I couldn’t attend because I was back in Kyiv, but as the intro says: “Television is an essential and trusted source of national and international news for Europeans. Whenever news breaks, TV correspondents are there on the spot to bring you the story.”

Having witnessed the events here firsthand and having followed the media coverage online and on my TV, I’m not actually convinced that they do (or did) ‘bring’ viewers ‘the story’, but that’s a separate debate.

In the video summary below TV correspondents from different European broadcasters discuss the operational issues and challenges they have faced when reporting from the conflict in Ukraine.
