They were there to explore the journalistic and artistic scope of magazine programs. The goal of the course was to produce factual, listener-oriented and critical news reports.

The group was constantly confronted with and reminded of the journalist's role in a democratic society. Reflections on questions of journalistic ethics are particularly important in a region where freedom of the press is restricted.
