The story of the first newspaper journalists in the UK

They brought no visual or technical skills with them, but a passion to learn, patience to understand, and a need to know how. In the ensuing months their video journalism skills would reap huge rewards. They'd also begin to break national stories.
Their trainer and veteran videojournalist, David Dunkley Gyimah, one of the first videojournalists in the UK in 1994 tells the story of how they cracked videojournalism in 8 days. Something you could do too.
