The digital era brings new opportunities. As a TV program director/producer focusing on contemporary history, international affairs and social issues, my challenge is to create a program style suitable for each generation’s needs. I am researching new methods of investigative journalism using interactive tools and the diverse media platforms used by the young digital natives. My objective is to explore the structure and format of future programs delivered by new media, while maintaining true to the principles of good journalism.
