New news way of working

It’s been intense. It’s been sad at times and it’s been rewarding. Working for BBC news full-time throughout the pandemic can be a surreal experience. The way we interview, shoot and edit news stories has changed. As you can see we do everything at least 2 metres apart and we frequently use sanitiser and wash our hands. Crews can no longer edit together in the satellite trucks or edit suits… it’s all done apart… separate vehicles, rooms or buildings. Technology is helping us do what would have been impossible 10 years ago. Many of us are working from home and filing track and rushes. In the almost deserted newsrooms there’s a one way system to get around… keeping journalists and the technical team safe and a bit fitter, walking the long way round to the producer’s desk, editing facilities, kitchen and loo.
