Based on training usually only offered to journalists entering war zones, this experience is a rare opportunity for the public to gain an understanding of the dangers that journalists can face. Set alongside relics of war at IWM London, the experience will dispel Hollywood myths about weapons, reveal techniques of blending in whilst in a conflict zone, and responding to a trauma situation, including how to potentially save lives. The session will be led by 1st Option Safety Group, responsible for training journalists from leading news organisations including BBC, CNN and ITN. Please note: this workshop involves role play, footage of combat situations, gunfire sounds, and accounts of casualties, which some visitors may find distressing. Not suitable for under 18s.
