    What does it mean to be an investigative journalist today? Which are the tricks of the trade? Do you need to study it or is it all just about instinct and stubbornness? This podcast showcases some of the best UK investigative journalism from recent years. Maeve McClenaghan, from the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, is the host and in each episode she takes us to the behind the scenes of an important news story, from the tip off through to the story getting published. There are 11 episodes so far, including Follow the Money, which uncovers the questionable financial practices of one of the Conservative Party’s largest donors, and Back to the Source which reveals how finding a vital source can let you into the world of the Pentagon’s top-secret propaganda machine.

    An independent news website sourced from the academic and research community and delivered direct to the public. The Conversation launched in Australia in March 2011 and in the UK in May 2013. It is a not for profit educational entity, funded by universities, that aims to rebuild trust in journalism by providing independent, high quality and authenticated information. The articles, written by academics and researchers with some help from professional journalists, are organised by subject areas like in any online version of a broadsheet newspaper: Arts & Culture, Business & Economy, Education, Environment & Energy, Science & Technology, etc. Interestingly, each article displays a disclosure statement indicating the author’s funding and any potential conflict of interest. The Fact Check UK section includes the statement being checked (e.g. ‘Is freezing eggs really ‘extremely unsuccessful’?), the link to its original source, a Verdict and a Review by an academic who gives his/her opinion on whether and why the author of the statement is right or wrong.

    Streaming/Download

    A YouTube channel which aims to tell the history of cinema, one film at a time. The first episode cheats slightly, covering the years 1888 - 1914 in one fell swoop, but from 1915 onwards the focus is on a single film per year, each example being selected for the way in which it demonstrates the advances made in the cinematic medium, in terms of technology, technique, genre etc. Amongst the directors covered are Charlie Chaplin, Sergei Eisenstein, Cecil B. DeMille and Buster Keaton. The site addresses animation, the advent of sound, techniques such as montage and the close-up, as well as early filmic examples of documentary, horror and science-fiction.
