That shot of Martine and Sally was rather striking and quite nice.

The low sweeping shot? I agreed if so
My contribution is small but you are welcome.

Great video. That shot of Martine and Sally at 10.10 would actually make a great opening for their bulletins.

Sad really. There is some quite appalling stuff in there. Shows what happens when you value machines more than people.

Remember when Christmas tapes used to be full of presenters fluffing their lines and guests behaving unpredictably?

Yes, that was my over-riding thought too. Was the compilation actually made to
send to the automation system integrator, along with the post acceptance snag list ?!

After the fifth random pan, I was starting to lose the will to live.

Three mins of genuinely funny clips, stretched out into 15 mins

It's certainly no Good King Memorex, and I would tend to agree that there is probably an agenda at play in the choice of clips that were included.

But it does highlight the fact that the automation glitches are making the output look amateurish at times, and that does need to be addressed.
Write that down in your copybook now.

Explains why they don't make Auntie's Bloomers anymore, can't imagine 100 camera mistakes creating prime time entertainment.
