Techniques of TV Interviewing

Respected television journalist Mike Minehan highlights the ingredients of a dynamic and successful television interview, using well chosen excerpts that include examples of great technique, as well as, of the pitfalls that await the unwary interviewer. This program is full of role models and cautionary tales. One classic excerpt, in which Margaret Thatcher turns the tables on an ill-prepared journalist, is worth the price of admission all by itself!

TV Interview Techniques

Part I demonstrates techniques for conducting a successful TV news interview, from putting the subject at ease to getting all the coverage you need for the edit. The development of an actual interview is analyzed and the segment concludes with the final edited version. A second section covers the somewhat different approach required for a current affairs interview. Here the emphasis is on advance research and questions that probe for conflict between interviewees and the record, their critics or their previous statements.
