BBC News - Venetian Blinds and Chinese Lanterns


I can't quite work out how the angles would work for the blue panel not to be in shot on the tighter shot?


The tighter shot has the camera positioned to the right (or her left) and zoomed in. The right side of frame would be aligned so the blue panel is just off-camera. Watch at 11:00 as it changes angles, you can see the change of perspective on her face. At 11:02 you can see her shift her perspective back to the wide camera.

It is confusing because there is likely not that much difference between the two angles, but with the longer lens it's just enough for the close shot to edge out the blue panel.

BBC Countdowns Compilation 1999-2017

Well I can honestly say 'by popular demand' because of the numbers of emails and comments I have gotten over the years asking for an updated version. Considering the original was created for YouTube at the then HQ resolution of 640x480, and the graphics being faithful to what was the then-current 2007 package, this was always going to be a massive job.
So I've finally pulled my finger out and overhauled it in full 1080p.



I'm posting it here to TV Forum first because I thought you guys would obviously appreciate, but eagle eyes amongst you may point out any mistakes I've made. And maybe even some of you might be able to offer some higher quality videos - the worst stuff in there are the BBC World 2005 / 2007 countdowns which are seemingly impossible to find in decent quality online.

Thanks to forum members Bail and Jimmyson for their help filling in some gaps.
