'Versioning' for TV and radio

In his Centre for Journalism masterclass yesterday, BBC World Affairs correspondent Allan Little explained how 'version' had become a verb for news reporters - as in, "Can you version that TV report for radio?" I thought an example would be in order, so here are two versions of Jeremy Bowen's reports from the Middle East yesterday.

Plan for RAG week

The raise and give society is run by Sarah Rawlinson and Sarah Brockhurst, it is a fun way to raise as much money as possible and all proceeds go to local and national charities.

This week is RAG week, there are loads of events going on throughout the day in the pilkington building and at night in coopers and there is fancy dress (so this week there will actually be people in our union bar!!!).
