Sky News will offer you unprecedented access to every aspect of its digital, television, and radio operations during a full day of live ‘behind the scenes’ broadcasting.
Sky News Raw, which will be broadcast on its own pop-up channel, will run from 7am-5pm on 5 February – 30 years to the day since the UK’s first 24-hour news organisation aired its first bulletin.
Niall Paterson and Jayne Secker will guide you through the day, where you will have a glimpse of Sky News inner workings, including key editorial meetings, every element of the newsgathering process and live studio and outside broadcasts.
Fixed cameras will capture events in the Sky News newsroom at Osterley, the political nerve-centre at Millbank, in the on-air TV galleries, the Sky News studios, along with locations around central London. A live camera will also track a day in the life of a reporter in one of Sky’s bureaus as they pursue a new story.
The day will be launched on Monday 4 February with a live debate on the future of news on Sky News (channel 501), featuring industry heavyweights including James Harding (Times, BBC, Tortoise), Peter Spiegel (FT), Ash Sarkar (Novara Media) and Alessandra Galloni (Thomson-Reuters).
Leading figures from new and traditional media will be interviewed across the day.
