Say you've found the ideal piece of archive audio on your computer, how do you get it into your package?
What are the characteristics of a two-way and when do you use it?
How to prepare for a two-way
*What does the audience need to know?
*What background is useful to inform them on this story?
*Why does it matter to the audience?
*Find out what your responsibilities are: in some the reporters script the host intro and suggest questions. In others, these are written by the host.
Don't use language that isn't conversational
Reporter: That's right. He's free to go, the embassy spokeswoman said. That's an indication that the State and Defence departments are moving very carefully here, despite an investigation by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. A spokesman for the Marines confirmed the existence of that probe yesterday, noting that the investigation includes the possibility that Haroun's captivity was a hoax.
Host: What's the basis for thinking that Haroun's captivity might have been a ruse?
Reporter: When Haroun first disappeared, the Marines classified him as on unauthorized leave. Even a week later, when Haroun appeared blindfolded in a video, with a sword hanging over his head, and a death threat issued by apparent captors, it was a day or so before the Marines changed Hassoun's status to captive....
Don't be drawn into speculation.
Don't use emotional or overblown language.
Let the producer know where you've been and what you've seen.
Suggest questions or at least topics.
Do suggest actualities that could be used by the host - or by you. Decide beforehand who will talk into a soundbite.
Notes are useful, but not scripted answers
Is there a compromise here?
- hard to see one
-Iranians want to enrich uranium under monitoring of I-A-E-A
-US firmly opposed
-Europeans say Iran can acquire nuclear fuel from others
- so far not enough incentives to Iran to abandon its position.
Two-way exercise (25 mins)
In pairs, take it in turns to record a 2-way of 1'30 - 3 questions - using any or all of the information on the factsheet. You can look up any other information you might need.
If you both have skype and laptop capability, feel free to try to experiment with recording it in the field (ie one in the classroom, one on a phone). Otherwise, you can record on a smartphone. It should be done in a single take with no edits.
What do you do....
...if you don't know the answer?
Explain...or deflect "Well, it's not yet clear since that information hasn't been released, but what we're hearing/what we know is......"
"Well, the main focus at the moment is...."
What do you do....
...if you mess up live?
Try to rescue it! If you cough or sneeze or lose your voice, just say, "Excuse me!" Try not to dry up. Sound confident and plough onwards.
What do you do....
...if there's an error in the question?
Try to correct it without making the host look bad.
Masterclass Week 10 listening. With task on padlet!
Next week is Pitchfest! All students must bring at least one Perfection Pitch to class. If you have two ideas you're vacillating between, then bring two pitches and the panel will help you decide.
