Today’s edition of the BBC News at One got off to a bad start, with a camera issue affecting the link into the top story.
The wide shot that followed the programme’s opening titles looked off from the start.
Presenter Ben Brown was positioned at the tower, ready to provide the link into the lead story. He was seen looking down at his paper script, presumably already aware that there was a potential issue with the cameras and that his autocue could become unavailable to him.
Ben’s camera almost immediately began moving in the wrong direction, taking his autocue with it. And he did indeed become dependent on his paper script when the autocue moved too far away.
Ben completed his link for the opening story and the accompanying video package was then played out normally.
