Classic Video Blooper

Chris (an old friend from way way back…) recently setup his own blog recently, given that he’s a Cameraman and Picture Editor working on International News it makes very interesting reading. However, when he posted this I couldn’t help laugh – The BBC mistake this Cab Driver for an IT expert… Genius! The look on his face when he realises what they’re about to do is pure genius!

Top Gear Finished!

Well it is according to Clarkson anyway, if not the BBC! The announcer after the last episode of the current series said it would back in the Summer, but Clarkson’s newspaper column in The Sun said: “Can I just say, here and now, it won’t be.” A BBC Spokesman responded by saying “Top Gear will be back. A summer special is planned.” A new series would reach screens in the autumn, he added. “We’re expecting all three boys to present the programmes.” But he refused to give any further details or explain the confusion.

A Slow News Day (or is it just damned odd!?)

It’s a damned odd news day (either that or it’s a very slow news day?!) I read the BBC News every day and these few things have sparked my attention! Turkey have banned YouTube, all because clips have been found on the site insulting former Turkish leader Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. According to the media there has been a “virtual war” (now that’s a first!) between Greeks and Turks, with videos showing Ataturk and Turks as  homosexuals. Insulting Ataturk, can result in a prison offence. Turkish visitors to the site are now greeted with a message in English and Turkish reading “Access to www.youtube.com site has been suspended in accordance with decision no: 2007/384 dated 06.03.2007 of Istanbul First Criminal Peace… Continue reading »

Recording shows from BBC Listen Again

I’ve wanted to do this so many time and I know a few other people that have wanted to as well! (I’ll be emailing this to them). So if you’ve ever wanted to download streaming audio and save it to an MP3 player this is how to go about downling an rm file from BBC and then convert real audio to mp3. It uses some free software called Audactiy to download any streaming radio from the internet to your hard drive as a WAV or MP3 file. NOTE: Huge disclaimer – Always read the copyright policies of the content provider, make sure you’re not breaching copyright by downloading their streaming audio streams. Download Audacity. It’s free and available for Mac,… Continue reading »

Broadcasting and YouTube!

Broadcasting is about to change, as more and more people start to use YouTube. You’ll notice that today, the video (that I posted last week), which showed rednecks chasing the Top Gear team does not work, this is because the BBC have had it removed from YouTube for copyright reasons. Real people have become celebrities overnight in the YouTube world. Take for example Peter, he is 79 and has 59 videos on YouTube. He has posted a series of videos about his life entitled Telling It All. They were an instant hit! Or Kate, at the tender age of 18, she has 19 videos on YouTube – with 13,662 subscribers, and 1,617,642 views of her videos. Now that’s popular! These… Continue reading »
