Agence France-Presse (AFP) has launched a service called Global News Agenda – an editorial resource, essentially a searchable diary list, of newsworthy events in 2008.
AFP claims it’s a world’s first, compiled by its 2,400 reporter across the planet
- Over 5,000 future events providing a wealth of story-leads and features ideas.
- More than 200 countries covered.
- Researched by over 2,400 AFP journalists in 160 bureaux worldwide.
- Five “at a glance” categories indexed by date, country and region.
But it’s only available in English and costs £145 for a password to the online edition.
You can also – and I can’t understand this really – get a printed edition. How would you keep it updated? Write in the margin? Do they send you extra pages through the year?
