The BBC is a world leader in news broadcasts. It’s fair, balanced, and delivers the news in a timely and organized manner. Except when it doesn’t. At all.
This video shows what happened when the BBC suffered technical difficulties at the start of the BBC News at 10.
Veteran newsreader Huw Edwards is forced to sit in silence while the technical boffins try to get things working. And the producers and bosses presumably run around in a blind panic.
Edwards is getting a lot of credit for remaining unflappable and unflustered. But wouldn’t he have been better off informing the viewing public what was actually happening?
