This series of stories, videos, graphics and other material sprang from a weeklong reporting trip to Spain in November 2011 to explore that nation's high-speed trains and what lessons they might hold for California's proposed HSR system. The trip was a joint project of The Fresno Bee and California Watch, and was published on Jan. 15 and 22, 2012. The reporter shot photos and video for the project while traveling in Madrid, Seville, Valencia and Barcelona. One video published Jan. 15 was edited and produced by California Watch, the second on Jan. 22 was edited and produced by the reporter (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYJny4IY9Cw).
Fellows in KDMC training programs go on to produce media- and technology-rich stories at their home publications.
