Tyne Tees Look North (North East)


I think that would pass muster in The Gallery, wouldn't it? Very Happy


The alignment of the Live strap doesn't match the rest of the graphics, and is far too low. The kerning could be improved with "NEWS". If that's a real TV bezel I hope the rest of the television was recycled in accordance with the WEEE regulations, as set out by the EU.

There have been worse mocks posted here. Hell, I've posted worse mocks here.

Maybe they could do a new BBC One ident with Brexit protesters (on either side of the argument) posing? They would have to change the caption to "One Mess" though.

(I'll get my coat)
Write that down in your copybook now.

Going by the audio, it's sped up.

I hadn't quite grasped how big the march was, but I know that part of London well and so it gives me a good idea of size (the caption saying 'Hyde Park' first appears no-where near Hyde Park though)

Good point about the audio, I played it muted initially. But at the same time the helicopter (assuming it was G-TAKE or pretty much any Arena Aviation helicopter) AS-350 series makes the same noise when flying at high speeds as opposed to just hovering or slow movement.

Also, one big pet peeve of mine is when aerial footage shown here in the US and I assume elsewhere they keep the NAT sound of the helicopter. To me it’s annoying - but what’s even more annoying is when you hear squelching sounds where I have heard it’s either data for the helicopter sends out to its location for the tracking receive site to point or used for the IFB.

Edit : Here’s an example of that squelching noise. I’ve heard many times on many stations across the country.

Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

On the website it's described as 7 and a half minutes sped up to 90 seconds (I mean it's quite obviously sped up when you see the pace some of the people are walking at)

See also the flag-wavers and drummers in their close-ups.

For some events (not sure if the likes of this protest would count), the BBC and Sky pool their pictures to save on flying hours and cover refuelling breaks. ITN have an agreement to receive the BBC's pictures live whenever they're flying.

We don't get that squawking noise here, just the engine effects. I'm trying to remember if they're actually live or just a recording - in the past in CCA I'd love watching the helicopter when it was out and about, as you'd get some great shots on its way to its destination, and also hear the reverse talkback from the spotter talking to the newsdesk.

That's not longer the case.

ITN switched from the BBC to Sky last year and buys into the pictures on an ad-hoc basis (depending on the nature of the story and how good the pictures are etc)..

If the Chequars summit ongoing sees her inform the attendees she will resign (either asap or in a few weeks/months.) and that leaks out/gets announced we might get news flashes etc on the main channels tonight.

Presumably a factor in that was when the BBC broke that deal by using the helicopter for the Cliff Richard raid without telling ITN
