BBCThe BBC is to release a series of behind-the-scenes videos detailing how it compiles its news packages.

The multi-media experiment will chart BBC reporter Ben Hammersley’s coverage of the run-up to the Turkish elections.

Hammersley will post unedited footage of interviews shot for the reports on the internet along with pages of his research notes.

The former Guardian journalist introduced the experiment with a YouTube post in which he detailed how his reports for the BBC World TV and World Service radio would be opened up for public scrutiny.

Future video updates, Hammersley added, will cover how the corporation finds people to interview, gets to locations in foreign cities and pieces its TV and radio packages together.
