012 – Creating a TV News Programme

In this exercise the group will put together a performance with the structure of a news television programme. 


  1. Choose a topic for your piece, from newspapers or something you have seen on the news recently. 
  2. Establish your characters and present your topic. For example, a presenter, guests, weather person, external correspondent, interviewer, etc.  
  3. You have 15 to 20 minutes to structure and rehearse the programme for your audience. 

Notes: The objective is to explore what makes a piece of news persuasive. Ask the participants how the article they chose influenced the piece and its presentation?
