About the Book:

On Camera is written by an ex-BBC trainer with a great deal of experience in the world of television and media. It is an essential guide for all trainee producers and directors in television and media production. It lays emphasis on practicalities and is divided into two parts, covering advice on effective preparation, to more technical and specific topics.

In the forward Michael Grade, former Chairman of the BBC, says "To those new to television, to those who want to be in television and to those who just want to know what on earth is going on, I recommend this book".

For many years it has been essential reading for students of the Media, this 3rd edition of On Camera has been thoroughly revised in response to new technologies. The chapter on editing has been completely updated to cover non-linear editing and to guide the reader through the variety of editing routes now available. The 'Technology for the non-technical' section now deals with digital technology, component and composite recording and compression, as well as more basic technologies. All the artwork has been redrawn.
