  What the jargon means
Updated 18 October 2001, 16.48

News wires - the latest news stories written by news agencies around the world

Shoot - the time when members of the team go out with a cameraman and film the stories for Newsround, around the UK or abroad. Sometimes a soundman will come too.

Running order - the stories and order they will be on the programme

Assistant producer - the people who go out and film, write the scripts and sit with an editor to produce the stories for the programme

Graphic designer - produces all the graphics and maps that you see on the Newsround programme

Director - the person who tells all the technical staff what to do in the gallery when the programme is on air

Log - creating a list of pictures and quotes from the unedited film that has been shot. This makes it easier and quicker to edit the pieces.

Scripts - the stories

Picture feeds - film that has been shot by news agencies that Newsround pays to use

Edit suites - the place where the picture editors work with a member of the team to edit the pieces

Running to time - the programme can only be a certain length. The producer has to make sure each story is written and edited to a certain time so the programme is not too long

Gallery - the place where all the technical team sit when the show is on air

Autocue - the rolling script just beneath a camera. When the presenter reads it you can't see they are reading and it looks like they are looking straight into the camera.
