Investigative Journalism Workshop, WITS

I'm attending the second day of the Investigative Journalism Workshop (IJW) taking place in Johannesburg.

The workshop seeks to encourage journalists in South Africa and the region to dig deeper on a daily basis and thus enhance probing, in-depth reporting - something of particular importance in young democracies.

Right now renowned investigative journalist Adriaan Basson of the Mail & Guardian (previously Beeld) is talking to us about public records and archives. About how and where to access them, assessing the validity and usefulness of secret, confidential and private documents, as well as the legal limitations of their use.
