Through my networking I met a man who is heavily involved with Working Lunch shown daily on BBC 2. He was good enough to invite me to watch the programme from the control room. I was like a kid who’d been asked to be a mascot at Wembley for his favourite team!
I sat next to the producer Lynn and the director and all the other people who, in my job we call ‘admin and support’.
It was fascinating watching the programme unfold. They kept changing things throughout and the poor presenters were being bombarded with @ 22 seconds too long …miss out next bit’ or ‘you need to adlib for 43 seconds , we can’t get the link to Denmark.
If you aver get a chance to go and have a look around the BBC at White City…take it.
