According to who? Feels like self fulfilling phophasy? Doesn't have to be a passport photo, can be related video images, that is often done anyway
But as a poster said earlier, that’s just radio?
There’s a difference between a reporter first on the scene of a breaking story doing a telephone interview and filling an entire programme with them.
I don't think anyone is suggesting replacing webcam based interviews with the phone, but having the phone as a rapid back up
I’m watching the ITV Lunchtime News right now. Alan Titchmarsh is back on after his interview couldn’t even start a couple of days ago after trying twice and having to eventually abandon.
Once again, today he is completely incomprehensible and the sound keeps cutting out. They’re having to persevere but you cannot understand a word.
So after they were caught out last time, why on earth did they not have him on the phone on standby at least as a backup? They should be quality controlling the interviewee before putting them to broadcast to prevent any such difficulties once they go to air.
