The news explainer has become a popular news format to help audiences understand tricky topics and subjects. There are few better in the business than BBC News presenter Ros Atkins.

In part one of this two-part episode, Atkins shared the two explainer frameworks he has developed during his career to help in situations within our control - such as presenting the news - and those moments where we need to think on our feet, like job interviews.

In part two, we apply this approach to some situations journalists might find themselves in.

Tune in to learn how to be better at pitching stories and projects, asking audiences to trust you, and communicating with your colleagues. All because you have learned the secrets of being clear and concise.
