Behind the scenes series with Independence Live continues

IN this week's instalment of our series offering readers an insight into the CommonSpace newsroom it’s the last day of the summer work experience programme, and Angela Haggerty and Kevin Gibney chat to Jason Baird of the National Yes Registry.

It’s the last day of our summer work experience programme, and we’re saying a sad goodbye to Stuart Rodger who has been an incredible part of the team over summer. Nathaneal Williams will be staying on as a full-time reporter.

Also in this week’s episode, reporter David Jamieson talks about the ongoing story surrounding pricing at the SNP conference, and editor Angela Haggerty and Independence Live’s Kevin Gibney speak to guest Jason Baird from the National Yes Registry. 

Through this feature, we hope to give you an insight into how we make decisions at CommonSpace and how reporters approach their work. We also hope it will encourage our readers to get in touch with us with any feedback, suggestions, ideas or even contacts that they might have for stories we're working on.

This week’s livestream is in two parts due to a slight technical hitch, both videos are available below.
