I think they should do it love from Millbank. They should have JT as the anchor with a pannel of Adam Boulton and other Political Commentators. Meanwhile at Sky Centre Julia And Martin should do a Sky News Today Like Setup to interview people from across the UKs reaction. Mark should do all the computer stuff.
With Peter Spencer shadowing the Conservative Party
With Glen shadowing the Labour Pary
And Jenny Percival should do the Liberals.
Kay Burley and Anna Botting on the street getting peoples reaction.
Then again this isn’t a general electtion – so I am probably over the top
Yep, the UK locals will start to come in on Thurs night, but they’ll drip on thru Friday, as will the GLA votes.. the Euro votes won’t be available till Sunday, as said above – but I’m sure we’ll have exit polls. By which time, on Monday, the tabloids will all be fretting over England v France in Euro2004.. so this might all turn out to be a bit of an anti-climax.. if you’re expecting something big from Super Thursday.
It’ll be Boulton, with Martin & Julie doing the SNT routine. All four politicals will be out at various places.. a standard reporter or two will be in constituencies which are seen as representative of the whole country, getting reports from normal people.. if there is such a thing. There will be others in important places.. (‘If labour lose here, with 13,000 majority they are definately heading for a large, heavy defeat nationwide..’ or ‘Can Kilroy upset the establishment here..?!’ )
The usual candidates will be in the studio, chatting.. Ken Clarke probly.. the bliarite loyalist (the one in Y-Fronts), the unreconstructed leftie (Austin Mitchell?), Ming Campbell & probly an occasional Green & an obligatory interview with a BNP candidate, sadly. Oh, but on the bright side – I’m sure Galloway will get some airtime – always good TV, that.
Will they think of a reason to get Kay in the Copter?
They used it the other day for a Dog Vs Horse race at Kempton Park – I got to see the Copter above my house, as well as the race on Sky how cool. It’s a lovely looking machine. It didn’t linger either.. 2 mins after the race finished, it headed back towards C London.. as Kay said ‘lets goto an ad break, as we all need to get paid..’
