Frontline: A Year of Journalism & Conflict, Somerset House

I have not seen this yet, but I am going to, and I am recommending it in advance of seeing it because I have a gut feeling that it will be excellent.

Cut and pasted from the Somerset House Website:

Frontline: A Year of Journalism & Conflict focuses on four of the major stories of 2011:
- the Egyptian revolution,
- Syria,
- the Libyan conflict, and
- the UK riots.

The multimedia exhibition offers a unique insight into the editorial, political and human aspects of news reporting.

The exhibition features live news reports from the stories as they happened and stills taken from Sky News HD footage. iPads throughout the exhibition give visitors access to background interviews with the journalists, editors and producers who worked on breaking the story as well as timelines, maps and photo galleries.

The exhibition highlights the dilemmas facing news organisations in authenticating and broadcasting often deeply disturbing images to the public.

The exhibition is open daily from 10am to 6pm and entrance is free. The exhibition runs until 5 February.
