Just back from Perugia and the International Journalism Festival. A tough gig - on the liver at least.
I chaired a discussion to mark the tenth anniversary of the International News Safety Institute (I'm President) on safety for journalists on the frontline. Taking part were Amedeo Ricucci and Susan Dabbous - both were held hostage in northern Syria earlier this month but escaped unharmed, Paul Wood from the BBC who has undertaken many brave undercover trips into Syria over the last 18 months, Ruth Sherlock from The Daily Telegraph and Hannah Storm, Director of INSI.
Video of many of the other great discussions at the festival are here.
Warning - many speakers talk in Italian and translation isn't available on the YouTube clips.

I have co-authored another report for the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford.
It compares audiences for international news on the BBC's main TV bulletins with users on the BBC news website during 2011 - a year of extraordinary international events.
The report is downloadable here.
I have blogged about it on the BBC College of Journalism website here.
