Academics & The Media


Academics & The Media: Videos

A series of five short videos made to accompany a workshop on 'Academics and the Media'. Five St Andrews academics were interviewed around a set of questions about their experiences of working with the media, and their interviews intercut.

The results were intended to provide discussion material on DVD for the workshop, and an online resource for participants. The results are available below. (Originals shot on HD, DVD and online playback at lower standards.)

Q1 What range of media experience do you have?

Q2 What impact does media coverage have?

Q3 How do colleagues react to your media exposure?

Q4 What advice can you give about working in public media?

Q5 Any thoughts or anecdotes you think might be helpful?
