International News Presentation: Past and Present

I'm sure some are on YouTube.

And you'd be right. I must admit that this is one of my favourite bloopers, just because it all goes a bit wrong for poor Leo, from not being ready for his cue, to problems reading the autocue, and finally stumbling on his words. The definition of a bad day in the newsroom:

BBC News: Presenters, correspondent & rotas

It’s the printer housing-cum-minibar. Every studio should have one.


Errrr, phrasing? 😮

-Cum-

Preposition

Used to join two nouns, showing that a person or thing does two things or has two purposes; combined with:

This is my bedroom-cum-study.

(https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/cum)

Not to be confused with the definition you'd find on Urban Dictionary, although I'll admit that was also my first thought. Laughing

BBC News (UK) presentation - Reith launch onwards

Was Riz Lateef in Studio E this morning for the Andrew Marr bulletin?

It looks like they've opted to use the newsroom as a live backdrop to give that illusion, but the use of a laptop, the slightly darker tone and the increased blurriness of the backdrop makes me think they they're a studio other than E. What studio that is though, I don't know.

International News Presentation: Past and Present

And this is the very dramatic on-screen warning about the approach of Dorian as seen as Martinique la 1ère:

It's easy to call it dramatic, but it's important to remember that these are intended to grab our attention and inform people of potential hazards. They may sound dramatic, or they may sound scary, but if people end up paying attention and listening to what they need to do to stay safe, then it's worth it.


For example, take these alerts from Australia and Japan:


With the first clip, you could very well miss critical information if you weren't paying attention, if it wasn't for the siren. As for the second clip, whilst the Earthquake Early Warning might sound relatively tame, it is a sound which pretty much any Japanese person would recognise, and use it as a cue to drop, cover and hold.

It is good to remember with these videos that, whilst warnings may sound dramatic, they are like that for a reason.

French TV

It has already been mentioned that 13h and 20h on France 2 will be getting a new look from tomorrow. However, more images and details have been revealed on lenodal.com.




I have also seen bits and bobs which suggest that BFMTV is getting an updated look from tomorrow. However, I haven't been able to get those details fleshed out.

EDIT: Unsure if this is something that has been mocked up a by Lenodal user, or if this is what we can expect from tomorrow:

I love the way you always introduce the YouTube video - I can really see this thread being a Channel 5 clip show Laughing

Now we go over to Japan for an edition of World Business Satellite, where they've been doing some tinkering around with the intro sequence. They've dropped the sponsors at the beginning, meaning the backing music for the sponsors is now used as they cut to the studio and the presenter, Oe Mariko:

BBC News (UK) presentation - Reith launch onwards

There seems to be a bit of a technical meltdown on BBC News Channel right now. Constantly switching between stills, random camera shots, and the shots intended. Audio levels have also been randomly dropping. There were also problems with the headline sequence about 30 minutes prior.

EDIT: 15:56 and it sounds like a studio shuffle is under way.
