Behind The Headlines takes New Zealand behind the scenes with some of the Herald's journalists who are experts in their fields.

The campaign features a series of videos of the journalists talking about their area of expertise – including one where award-winning Editorial Cartoonist Rod Emmerson draws them in caricature, we even talked Rod into drawing himself.

Step inside the world of Rod, our Editorial Cartoonist, as he talks about the influence of a cartoon, where to draw the line and putting pen to paper.

Alongside Rod, Dylan Cleaver (Sports Editor at Large), Simon Wilson (Senior Writer), Fran O'Sullivan (NZME Editorial Director - Business) and Audrey Young (Political Editor) are the first interviews to feature, followed by more of the team throughout the remainder of the year and into 2019.
