Welcome to the first blog from our newest team member, Matt Wheeler, who has join us this week and so we thought it would be good to get his views on some current TV content. Matt chose to review the latest series of Sir David Attenborough’s BBC documentary, Blue Planet 2, and share his thoughts on how the world of wild life video production has changed since the first series.

‘No matter what happens the news will go live, even if there’s an earthquake, a fire or if we all die. News will go live or it’s a dictatorship.’ This is what editors of Greece’s state broadcaster ERT stated. That has always been the attitude of broadcasters; way back in my BBC years, it was always an unspoken agreement that the News would continue, it was then and could still be a vital part of our freedom to communicate in an impartial and unbiased way. If the BBC were to fail, I suppose we would go back to radio, local community radio and even HAM radio – somehow there would be people who would make it their business to continue broadcasting, it’s bit like a bug! However, let’s not forget that there are many countries in the world where free broadcasting does not happen, so let’s be protective and proud of what we have.

Of course, good quality images and sound are also key, they represent your business to potential clients,and good content with poor images doesn’t create the right impression to potential customers.

In business, the same thing is happening; we are seeing more and more research being done on mobile devices where businesses are looking for suppliers and information in short, well -constructed video content.
