Video news packages are available from UNICEF for use by news journalists and current affairs broadcasters. These 10-, 15- and 20-minute Betacam video tapes highlight the plight of children around the world as well as UNICEF-supported programmes in support of children and their communities.

The sequences are shot by professional cameramen and edited loosely to give broadcasters the flexibility to re-edit. Tapes are provided with shot lists and story background. The audio is natural sync sound only.

Available footage includes video news packages with or without narration and PSAs. Footage is collected in the nearly 160 countries in which UNICEF works.

For information on how to order video packages in Mozambique, contact our Communication team

All the material is provided free of charge.
