The latest opportunity to do work experience at the Jeremy Vine is up for grabs: http://careerssearch.bbc.co.uk/jobs/job/workexperience/25102 Successful applicants will be given 2 weeks of work experience on the show which now has the biggest audience for a current affairs programme on BBC Radio. It has 7.5 million listeners, slightly more than R4's Today Programme. The experience will take place at some point in the New Year. The application window closes on the 29th November.
Some random thoughts on Zim coverage so far:
Well done Radio 4's Today - amazing mangling of Mnangagwa. Try to get it right, he might be the next President. Still why bother with these silly African names. Poor Journalism and why give a London-based, uninformed ZANU-PF stooge so much uninterrupted airtime? It;'s a shame they didn't get a proper expert on Zimbabwe instead of some writer (and former Cameron speechwriter) who has just been to Zimbabwe. Plenty of real specialists easily available in UK. Very simplistic and uninformative about what is really going on - the exercise of combined military and political power for control of the ruling party. Not so much as coup as militarised politics within ZANU-PF. Context and history is everything in this story
