If journalism is the first draft of history, the people reporting the news are often on the frontline of conflict, disaster and tragedy. Journalists, photographers, artists, camera operators and fixers are our eyes and ears in dangerous parts of the world. As part the #30DaysPF campaign, our panel explores the risks – physical, psychological, political - for foreign correspondents and the local fixers who work with them. As international bureaux are increasingly depleted and more foreign correspondence falls to freelancers, what measures are in place to protect and support them, particularly as journalists become high profile targets in terror campaigns? Hear from industry greats as they discuss the whole process from landing in a war zone, publishing their stories and then returning home. With Brian Thomson, SBS, Peter Stefanovic, Nine Network, Yaara Bou Melhem, independent broadcast journalist, Cait McMahon, DART Center for Journalism and Trauma, and moderated by Eric Campbell, ABC.
