The BBC News Magazine story linked to is in the Feature sytle genre. It adheres to it's genre by having an opening that tells more than the who what where when how of a strict news event account. It also fits its genre by incorporating a creative way of writing the story. While Features give as much attention to facts and detail as news stories, they are significantly distinguished by these two characteristics and by greater length.
