In effort to connect and engage more deeply with today’s audiences, BBC World Service recently undertook the  process of developing their new brand positioning statement: Live the Story.  Live the Story is far more than a marketing campaign—it is a guidepost for their reporting and sound as they aim to place listeners at the heart of every event.  And, with journalists in more places than any other international news broadcaster, they are uniquely positioned to do so because they don't go to where stories happen, they're already there.

As anchor of BBC World Service's leading current affairs program Newshour, Tim Franks is situated in the hub of the world’s newsroom.  He will be joined by Steve Titherington, Senior Commissioning Editor, as they share how embracing Live the Story has changed their work and what it means for their journalists and audiences around the globe.

Join us as we Live the Story.
