Anglia (East) Look East
I’m watching GMT right now (the PBS simulcast half hour) that I recorded. Ben Brown was reporting from Downing Street and while he was beginning to talk to Norman Smith a pair of hands appeared and they grabbed Ben’s side and forced him to move over a step. A bit awkward I thought.

It wouldn't surprise me if it happens more often than you'd think. There doesn't appear to be much space and a lot of media to fit in.

They could have just politely asked him to move forward?

He was on air interviewing Norman so that would have been a bit more awkward. He stepped aside a bit closer to the Downing Street than he was before, I suspect it was so he would be facing the camera a bit better. Before they were essentially perpendicular to the sidewalk.

The people he was working with may not have been able to ask him to move via IFBs (because why would it be needed when you are right next to them?).
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

Is it the first or second B that stands for Buzzfeed?


Do you remember that much-repeated anecdote about Lord Reith visiting the BBC for an interview in his 70s? He was disgusted that some of the female office workers had pinned photos of "hot" BBC workmen on the walls alongside the more formal photographs of statues. He was angry that this sort of behaviour was contrary to the professionalism and values of the organisation he had put so much of his life into.

Based on that, I'm sure he'd be delighted that the typeface named after him is being used for this video.
