Why now?

80% of the UK public report getting most of their developing world knowledge through broadcast. It’s never been more important to ensure coverage is consistent and well informed.

Only then can it fulfil its crucial role in building public  interest, understanding and action for change – especially important during a period when the UK takes presidency of the G8,  the new Millennium Development Goals are drawn up, Africa takes huge economic strides  and the BBC renews its public service Charter.

At the same time the challenge is huge. The UK economic climate is adversely affecting public support for aid and development, as well as squeezing budgets for foreign stories.

IBT has a long history of ensuring there’s space in the schedules for world affairs stories. And that charities have the knowledge and skills to help tell them.

We cannot afford for the UK public to look away. Join IBT now and make sure they don’t
