forty eight per cent of their readers read us either all the time or some of the time and
they didn’t even measure the child readership, which is very broad. So we were quite
excited by that, that we were read - as I understand it - even more than their editorial
page.
Presenter:
And do you find that, erm, people will cooperate? I mean do they, for
Bob:
Our kids have interviewed all recent US presidents and many other leaders. So I’d
say that the children are taken seriously and they have a background, you know, we’ve
been in business for nineteen years now so that they’ve been at it for a long time and I
think we’re quite well-respected in the US media business.
Presenter:
Do the children take notes or are the interviews recorded as they’re being
done?
Bob:
Everything is recorded on tape.
Presenter:
And do the youngsters rewrite and edit their own stuff under guidance?
Bob:
Our kind of journalism for newspapers and magazines - just so you get some idea
of why it’s so readable by adults - we call it oral journalism. Everything that the
children do is tape recorded. The young reporters do the interviews and these are
recorded. The teenage editors take notes during the interviews. Then the teenage editors
question the reporters about the interviews and this questioning is recorded too. All of
that recorded material is then typed out and the young editors then piece the articles
together from that. So they don’t rewrite, everything is edited from those recordings.
Everything in the articles is either the words of the person being interviewed or the
words of the child who interviews them. So it’s a rather unique form of journalism.
Presenter:
You’re proud of what you’ve done, you’re proud of your children, aren’t
you?
Bob:
Very proud.
Presenter:
Well, we wish you luck.
Bob:
It’s been a great pleasure, thank you.
Presenter:
Right, a short break and then it’s sport.
That is the end of Part 4.

Well, I’d been in this country for about a year and I thought I knew the way things were,
but I obviously didn’t have a grasp on some things. I thought that you were supposed to
take a present on occasions like that, but I was the only one who did. I felt pretty bad
because I was expecting that everyone else would have done the same, so I didn’t really
know what was going on - only that I’d got it wrong.

Man:
I think we’re going to miss it. Er... did you lock up and switch everything off?
Woman:
Stop worrying. Everything’s under control. I checked everything.
