Abstract: The journalism landscape is constantly changing, with new technologies and mediums re-defining the relationship between the news media and the public. Since journalism also seeks to function as a documentary practice, this thesis will apply the documentary modes Bill Nichols initially devised to categorise non-fiction film to the field of journalism in order to help chart the changing nature of the profession. Transposing these documentary film forms may lead to new theories and ideas about the role of journalists and their evolving relationship with the audience.
