A short film has been released highlighting the BBC’s editorial process using a combination of genuine behind-the-scenes footage and news clips.

Featuring well-known journalists including Clive Myrie, Orla Guerin, Lyse Doucet and Jeremy Bowen, the two-minute spot uses hard-hitting footage gathered over the last few months from the ongoing war between Ukraine and Russia.

Segments of Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Russian president Vladimir Putin feature alongside horrific scenes of reporters and civilians caught in the middle of the fighting.

The film ends as a tearful Clive Myrie receives the countdown ahead of a live broadcast on BBC News, and the screen displays the message: “If you know how it’s made, you can trust what it says. Trust is earned.”
