Tuesday 5th November:
This week’s sports was partially filmed on the Tuesday with the second half to be added into the Live Bulletin on Wednesday and we had Lucy Wilson presenting for Sportsweek for the first time. I was on auto-cue which I now find the most comfortable piece of equipment after having had a lot more practice.
Sportsweek ran very well but unfortunately due to changes in the script on Tuesday night, we had to re-film with a different presenter on the Wednesday morning.
The Big Interview with Rowenna Davis:
On Tuesday afternoon we had the opportunity to film Rowenna Davis, a British author, journalist, political commentator and Labour Party councillor in Peckham – in an interview with Winol’s Nadine Forshaw. Davis was selected in July this year as the Labour Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Southampton Itchen for the 2015 general election.
As part of the production team I helped set up the studio and film for the interview which are some of the main roles I enjoy in Winol.

Wednesday 6th November: (6th WINOL Bulletin)
Presenter: Harry Parkhill News Editor: Matt Spencer
This week was my second week on sound. For the first time this semester we had a live stream discussion between a reporter in the newsroom and our presenter in the studio. Although ruthlessly testing the sound beforehand there were still some technical errors in the broadcast although with the equipment that we had on the day paired with our strict time constraints it was, unfortunately, unavoidable. It is clear to see that WINOL is improving every week and the bulletin ran very smoothly. Spencer was a brilliant news editor making sure that all the stories were in early and we even had time for some rehearsals. Our director Megan Fisher was very good in making sure everybody was comfortable in the gallery. In subbing this week there was a real improvement and crack down on deadlines and we worked hard on Tuesday and Wednesday to make sure that all the stories were SEO checked, well written, fact checked and contained images.
