Today showing the value of using health/scientific corresondents rather than political ones to ask questions at the daily briefing.
Hugh Pym’s question was direct, concise and useful and in a different league to Peston’s melodramatic, meandering one that beefitted nobody. Peston of all the broadcasters seems to be particularly shocking - his ‘why don’t you trust the British people’ question today was particularly abysmal.

Hugh Pym was Economics correspondent for many years before taking the Health gig. It may just be the benefit of being a good, old school, journalist rather than being a health specialist?
Write that down in your copybook now.

It's something that always irritates me too.
The dialling code for London is 020, not 0207 or 0208.
I often used to change ours, and then later discovered that someone had put it back to the wrong format.
Grrrr.

This could go in either the NBC thread or here, but due to the coronavirus someone at NBC News thought it would be good to launch NBC Nightly News for Kids. The show is target for kids between 6 and 16.

Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

Captain Tom Moore coming up shortly on BBC Breakfast with Naga and Charlie; the final lap of his walk, with total raised nearing £14M including pledges. What a man. This promises to be a very touching moment of television.
