One of the interesting things about working in TV is that you get to see how well — or badly — the great and the good (and the not so good) handle themselves in front of a camera. Lots of them have had some kind of media training. But all too many never get enough opportunity to put what they learn into practice. Two weeks, two months down the line after a training session, how much remains in their memory? Have they put the tools learned into everyday practice — or have they just put them to one side?
Should online TV therefore give folk the chance to learn by doing? Isn’t that a better way of applying those lessons?
Just a thought for today
