Back on the box

Thanks again to Nick for grabbing a ‘where’s wally’ shot of my second Watchdog appearance. (Last week’s TV debut, with detailed comments, is here.)

This week, I was invited to sit-there-and-look-busy to fill a space in the Watchdog desks. I’ve done a lot of work with them this week, so it felt quite natural to join them in their office. The computer in front of me was initially switched off, and with not much time to spare before the live broadcast began I made frantic notes and tried to ignore the camera. I turned the desktop PC on during the first pre-taped segment and proceeded to spend a very productive half-hour checking my email, blissfully unaware of the goings-on in the studio. Quite a nice place to hot-desk on a Monday night, really.

  1. This is another BBC scandal! People ‘pretend’ to be ‘working’ on ‘computers’!!! When will the BBC stop wilfully pulling the wool over our eyes???!!!?

  2. Oohhh, next week I’ll help. I’ll be “Second man walking into background bringing documents for first man and talking business in the background”-guy.
