Are you sure, considering the number of people he'll have been in contact with?


Statistically speaking, yes.

No it isn't. Tell people ONCE, not repeat it for 20 minutes. I switched over after 10 minutes because it was just becoming a sycophantic propaganda-fest.


Exactly. I wouldn't actually have minded if it had been several times in an hour, and I expect that's how it'll be for the rest of the day anyway - it was the fact that it was one long uninterrupted - even for the TOTH - half an hour of Prince Charles and nothing else.

As mentioned in the presentation thread - he is the first in line to the throne, the coverage is justified.

Agreed. I wish him well, and he's in exponentially increasing good company, but there's a far bigger picture here. Same applies to other celebs and well known people.

I’m streaming the Downing Street briefing today via the BBC News website where, notably, there are no graphics or lower thirds, no signer for the deaf and no view of the correspondents asking the questions.

Perhaps they’re trying different formats each day to see what works best.

I’d like a simple split screen at the point of the remote correspondent asking a question. (I’m being pedantic).

However, the pres aspects are secondary to the technical and medical content of the briefing itself.

The weekly Wednesday night News Special with Rachel Burden really does show how well that Breakfast studio can work with a solo presenter. Anyone not familiar with Breakfast would be forgiven for thinking it was big.

For perspective - watch on iPlayer afterwards.

Totally pointless on location TV news interviews need to end NOW.

Just one example from Channel 4 News this evening. Krishnan interviewed cabinet minister Robert Jenrick out in the open near Parliament. Why did they need to meet like that? This could have easily been conducted via video link/skype or whatever remotely. There was literally no need for that outdoor interview set up whatsoever.

I'm more concerned by the gimmick of the presenter, presenting from home, using what is clearly a proper broadcast set up, and lighting. Unless of course C4's presenters are now fully skilled engineers and lighting directors. I can't believe it doesn't involve several people in there to set it all up?

Perhaps they’re testing for the studio being out of action. Seems sensible.
