John Yorke Story

Whether you’re working on a documentary, format show or corporate video, all factual stories share an underlying structure. 

Discover why some resonate with audiences worldwide – and how to fix those that don’t – on this online professional development course from BAFTA-winning storyteller John Yorke.

You’ll explore the essential elements every factual story needs, whether you’re working in unscripted TV, on podcasts, documentaries or factual content for business.

This practical industry-led training is based on John Yorke’s bestselling book on story structure, Into The Woods – with exercises based on everything from popular series like Grand Designs to Oscar-winning documentaries.

By the end of the 7 weeks, you’ll also come away with industry skills for pitching original ideas.
