News faces an age crisis: it cannot attract young people. In the minds of the young, serious journalism has the same status as picking up the phone or drinking Horlicks.

Don't forget your final class before the Essential Media Law exam is on Friday. Year 2s - please note our room has changed this term - we are in G2-04. (MAs remain the same). Please bring your McNae with you. We will be working through the Sample 2 exam - the one which is on Moodle - plus a few extras. If you are choosing to do the Court Reporting module, classes will start the following Friday - the 25th - same times, same places.

You will more than likely laugh at why I wonder why I’m almost entirely alone when it comes to snooker and my age bracket.
Here are the slides from my presentation. Good luck to all. Remember, you have to be in it to win it!
