The Combat Camera Team (CCT) is a trio of defence correspondents for the MOD. It’s their job to collect multimedia stories about British forces on operations in Afghanistan. The three are all trained soldiers who have served in other parts of the Army, and can revert to this role if needs be. As a result, they are able to go forward and interact with troops in ways that other forms of media can’t.
As a news team, the CCT produces video rushes and interviews for broadcasters; packaged videos for the web; written copy; stills photography; live and pre-recorded interviews from the field. The team’s stories and material are then distributed directly to the British and worldwide media.
