“When you’re young, you’re going to do your best work – you’re fearless and you take risks that you wouldn’t take when you’re older,” said David Henshaw, a former BBC reporter and producer who has run his own indie, Hardcash Productions, for almost three decades.

"It’s always going to be risky and you only get the really good stuff by taking risks"

Henshaw was speaking at an RTS Futures event on investigative journalism in London. The multi-award-wining film-maker received an RTS Fellowship in 2009.

The initiative was founded eight years ago and aims to promote diversity in broadcast journalism.

Fronted by journalists Charlene White and Ria Chatterjee, Breaking Into News is now open to everyone of all ages and backgrounds and welcomes individuals with little or no media experience.
