News on a knife edge: Gemini Journalism and a Global Agenda

WAS £10.00 £7.00

Product description

This work describes a London-based news feature agency, Gemini News Service. Since its birth in 1967, it has been practising the difficult concept of development journalism, and trying to even up the news flow between the South or Third World and the North or West. This account tells of a tiny, influential enterprise which has survived at least three crises and is now governed by an international foundation. The brainchild of Derek Ingram, a former Deputy Editor of the "London Daily Mail" and a campaigner for the Commonwealth, it is regarded today as a development tool in its own right. Gemini also trains journalists and has pioneered newspaper graphics, science and environmental reporting, and investigations into the needs and attitudes of Third World villages. The book contains chapters on Gemini's history, the Developing world and the new world information order, the journalists and artists, the Commonwealth and Gemini's educational work, plus 31 articles originally put out by the service, including Richard Hall's account of the fall of Biafra in 1971. The book should be of interest to people interested in North-South issues and the evolution of the modern Commonwealth.
