  12. 12. Journalistic process  Ask yourself  Is audio the appropriate medium?  Can it be used to add breadth or depth to your piece  Ensure you follow good journalistic practice  Do not misrepresent and be faithful to your interviewees intention.
  13. 13. Kit requirements  Audio can be recorded by a number of devices  Dictaphone  Telephone  Conversion between file types may be required:  Think about  compatibility  compression
  14. 14. Quality  TOP TIP: Always try to acquire recordings at the highest quality possible  CD  Dictaphone  Telephone 44.1 KHz 22 KHz 8KHz 44.1 KHz means the recording device will ‘sample’ the sound 44,100 times a second
  15. 15. Interview technique  Be nice  Control your environment  Ensure the interviewee gives name, rank and serial number  Aim to ask open questions  Avoid utterances such as: yeah, a-ha, mmm…  Try not to interrupt  Use silence to your advantage  Repeat if required  Say thanks
