Is someone rolling that autocue or is it automatic? I suppose they can't afford a speech recognition cock-up although I found it very reliable when I tested a system 10+ years ago.


There is an Autocue operator for the News Channel and BBC One main bulletins. When there were short daytime summaries on BBC One and Sixty Seconds bulletins on BBC Three from NBH the presenters had the option of either a hand controller or foot pedal to control it themselves.

An 'and finally' report on the first ever Red Nose Day in 1988 - stay tuned to the end for some ITN frivolity!

I’m not sure if this was an ...and finally but certainly has the potential. And of course it’s Simon McCoy, who doesn’t love him.

It is bad that I like good news stories and funny moments in news programmes. The news can be very gloomy at times and something like Simon McCoy in despair about a trivial story always makes me chuckle.

Not really a witticism but Mike Bushell falling into the pool at the Commonwealth Games:
AndrewPSSP, Roger Darthwell and DE88 gave kudos

That for me is Simon McCoy's great skill, that he can gear change so well between handling serious stories with requisite gravitas to giving trivial stories the treatment that they deserve.
Write that down in your copybook now.

It seems ITV has been reading this thread as they have a documentary called ....And Finally

Sadly I think we're unlikely to see Simon McCoy's best moments as it would make the programme 4 hour long!

We didn’t miss it, it was just in a different thread Wink

Didn't know where to post this, but Simon McCoy's been caught sitting down on the job again... Laughing

"Britain's greatest ever newsreader" is a bold claim.
Be nicer and more tolerant to each other. Them's the rules.

That honour belongs to Simon McCoy.....
