Britain's Boom to Bust
Ed Conway, the Telegraph's economics editor, talks us through Britain's boom and bust using eight key graphs – savings, GDP the FTSE and unemployment to name but a few
These graphs, with the aid of audio narrative, give key insight to the UK economy
Importantly, Conway talks to the graphs
The visual facts
Without these key visual facts, it would be hard for the viewer/reader/listener to follow and be able to quantify the report
David Kinross built this excellent interactive
I think it is the first time at Telegraph.co.uk we have used such AS scripting to combine audio and information graphics to show and explain news and comment
But designed in a crisp, intellectual way
David Kinross has supplied some hot technical background for the coding involved in producing the interactive... many thanks David
