Madeleine – 10th – #8 – TV interviews

The time is around 9.48pm according to the church clock, and the interviews with Reverend Hubbard are underway.

Our gentleman in an orange T-shirt is there. The blonde-haired lady in the full length camel-coloured coat is, I believe, from Sky, as is the gentleman taking the video. As far as I can tell, Mr Brunt is engaged in conversation with 2 people just to the right of the church door. The CMTV team is still hard at it just to the left. In the centre with the backpack is Michael Havis from the UK media.

I have no idea who the people inside St Vincent’s are.

The grilling continues.

Martin Brunt appears to be enjoying his conversation with the couple behind.

I am interested in the technology deployed, for the simple reason that I would like to upgrade my own kit, though it will be nowhere near what you can see in the photo. But please notice a couple of points.

BBC and Sky appear to favour those big, fluffy microphones. The Portuguese media, however, appear to favour a hand-held microphone sporting their company logo.

The second point is that the man in orange appears to be using a hand-held microphone with no logo on it. I haven’t got a clue as to why.

Now it is the CMTV turn to interview Reverend Hubbard. The lady in black is back and she is holding up a red CMTV microphone, which is why I knew beforehand in this series that she was from CMTV.

What are the points to notice?

First, the video camera is giving off so much light that Reverend Hubbard’s face has almost disappeared from my photo.

Second, if you look at the shadows being cast, the dominant light is still the sodium street-lights.

Third, Mr Brunt appears to have bagged another couple to garner a sliver of information or a quote.
