Henry Morton sends video form China

Afternoon, bloggers.

We have a great video for you all today that captured recent military drills in China.

Our Global Radio News parent received some video from one of its China correspondents today.

Meet GRN correspondent Henry Morton, currently operating in Beijing. Henry shot some footage of the People’s Liberation Army’s Third Guard Division, and we’re sharing it with you.

The division is drilling for their upcoming 60th anniversary on August 1, as well as the 60th anniversary of the People’s Republic in China in October.

At the moment, the full video (11:42 min) is available for viewing on our Ning network, Sell News. Click here to view the page where the video is hosted.

We’d of course provide the video on YouTube, but we were stuck with its 10:00 limit.

And to throw in a bit of a teaser, here’s a small gallery of screenshots from the video:

And of course the video itself.

Hope you enjoyed the brief look at what’s going on in China outside headline news. We’re all about connecting you directly to the reporter behind the news desk – which in this case is Henry Morton.

Special thanks to Henry for sending in the video for this post.

Happy viewing,

Kim

“At the tip of the surge” – another video from Helmand, Afghanistan

08/07/2009

Global for me videoupdate


for [Stories from Helmand]

Morning, bloggers!

Freelancer Jerome Starkey continues to upload videos from Helmand, Afghanistan to his YouTube Channel.

Here’s a second video of his work in an area hard-hit by the war in Afghanistan, “At the tip of the surge.”

Thank you, Jerome.

Jerome is the first British journalist to report from this region without the military in over a year. It’s freelance reporting about the locals’ points of view: their opinion of foreign troops, the military surge and how war has affected their lives.

We’re not sure what else is in store from Jerome. Keep close watch on his channel to see what else he may upload in the coming days. We’ll be sure to keep close watch, too.

Global for me videoupdate


for [Stories from Helmand]

Afternoon again, bloggers!

Jerome Starkey e-mailed us an update from Helmand, Afghanistan.

Jerome is reporting in an area hard hit by the war in Afghanistan, but he also uncovered a strange world leftover from years past: Little America, a region in Afghanistan that he describes as “build on the sand” by US aid dollars in the 1950s, then forgotten.

Here’s an update on Jerome’s work via his YouTube channel.

Thanks for your hard work, Jerome.

To our readers: if you’d like to see more, head over to Jerome’s YouTube channel to view more videos, or read our original blog post about his proposed work. More donations can help this story reach its fullest.

As always, feel free to contact or comment on this developing story.
