Meridian (South) South Today
I'll be honest, I got in late and saw the 2 shot and didn't pay attention thinking it was still the 6, then heard Sally asking a question, saw the time and realised it was South Today rather than the nationals. Rather than listening, I jumped onto the iPlayer to rewind and post here... because I'm a geek...

It was about a programme that’s going to be "on" BBC Three with some drama/recreations about a previous murder they're trying to solve, this was a "earlier I spoke to..." style thing, done as live, clearly with Media Boys permission Smile

This evening both ITV News Meridian and South Today carried tributes to Trevor Baker - Southern Television weatherman - who has died.

Meridian had a recorded tribute with Fred Dinenage speaking on the phone from wherever he's on hols.

Fred's tribute can be heard here:

Are the English regions's subtitles live captioned or taken from the ENPS/TelePrompTer feed? I ask because in the US you see the most delay (and some times dozens of lines of automation codes) when a station takes the TelePrompTer output vs having it transcribed professionally.

As a funny aside there was an instance where a CBS's Blue Bloods carried the first seven minutes of captions from HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher. People expecting a regular dialogue were treated to a monologue of political humor and cursing. I don't think the reason was ever publicly revealed but if I had to guess was that Blue Bloods had some last minute edits where they had to transcribe the show live.

The script in ENPS is available to the subtitler - but VTs and live interviews have to be transcribed by an operator 'live'. (These days via ReSpeak but previously stenographically)

The scripts for the national news are put into the subtitler though, aren't they? I was in the queue at Barclays the other day and the News at 1 was on, and when doing links into VTs full lines of text were appearing on screen (I assume) in sync with the audio, before going back to word-by-word when airing a VT or the like - I hadn't seen this before and was quite impressed as it was live programming.

Yes - the script for the studio links into VTs and into interviews (and which will appear on prompt) is in ENPS and thus available to the subtitler. ENPS is the Electronic News Production System that BBC News use to script their shows.
