I'm all for the home reporting and presentation, but this part of C4 News' initiative seems just too overproduced to have any positive benefit?
Amplifying this important note. I wonder if any of my industry colleagues share my concerns of how many key workers are being assigned to shows that are clearly not public service broadcasting. I'm hearing some frightening production decisions being made by broadcasters, from colleagues involved in shows that have no merit other than maintaining profit/audience share. No programme should go to air if it puts lives at risk and medium sized groups of people working in a close knit tv environment is asking for trouble.
Should broadcasters take more responsibility now be more strict on what live shows are now made? Should all live shows now be restricted to news only, and should they be a single presenter led with a locked off or remotely operated camera with absolute bare minimum crew? I think we're at that point now.
I suspect this isn't the right platform for this question given that tv forum seems more concerned about overlapping DOGs
I work in telly, I sometimes get time to watch telly. More of a technology geek than a presentation geek!
