News is about life. So it involves not only controversy but also stories about good news such as a particularly courageous person, or sad news about victims of a fire. In other words, there are as many different types of stories as we find in our daily lives. This Handbook may look like another textbook but it is not. It contains the ideas, values and tips of successful television and radio journalists. What is mentioned in these pages works in the newsroom and on the air.
