Wednesday 4th December:
This was my second week as director and our final bulletin of the year. Unfortunately there was a major layout problem in script that threw off autocue and left a reliance on the presenter and his hard copy and pen. My dilemma as a director this week was not that the autocue was down but that there were identical errors that we had no time to correct in the hard copy. Story order jumped from seven to nine and there were multiple ‘Coming ups’ in places that there shouldn’t have been, confusing all members of the gallery. Despite this we still ran on time at three o’ clock, as we did every week, and the presenter that week did extremely well in recovering the script.
