Factual Programming Dan Moorhouse

News reporters- would normally be sat behind a desk or maybe on a sofa. They would most likely be facing head on to the camera. While sat at the desk you would see them possibly shuffling paper on the table. Normally when the broadcast starts, they will play dramatic music to build up the biggest story of the day. Codes and conventions

They would have a newsroom where you will see other people on computers, possibly researching and trying to get hold of contacts they want for the news broadcast. The anchor and the reporters may use aggression when trying to get answers from someone to make sure we are getting the best response to the story. Codes and conventions

They will normally have interviews or talking to expert guests in the studio or offset to give more information on the story they are telling.They have cuts to other reports who are in a different location to the studio. Codes and conventions

They may use voice overs, also known as The voice of God to explain while also showing a visual for the viewersThey would normally have big screens in the studio ( maybe green screens) which will display images or writing, possibly facts and figures to give a visual aspect for the viewers. Codes and conventions
