28 May, 2019

Fair Go assistant producer and a recent AUT graduate Blessen Tom and current postgraduate student Sri Krishnamurthi embarked in May on a storytelling project about Pacific Media Watch.

They are interviewing the founders and some of the journalists and students involved on the media freedom project, which was launched in 1996 at the time of the jailing of the so-called Tongan Three for contempt of Parliament for publishing a document about an impending impeachment.

Krishnamurthi, originally from Fiji, was a news agency journalist for many years.

Watch for their completed video when the documentary project is completed.

Both have won awards for their previous media work at AUT.
