...arf arf But seriously...today i am in the middle of a two day training course on how to be a tv presenter. The OU, who I work for (for whom I work, whatever), have decided that they need to punt more of their academic staff into the media by fronting TV shows. Well I'll try anything once. Quite exciting you might think... And, bloody hell, it's really hard. Normal sentences become impossible to say with a camera in your face, walking along, using props and so on. It's really hard to be just normal and yourself, which is what you're supposed to do. The pros make it look easy. Anyone else been surprised at how hard something actually is once they've had a go? As a starter for 10, i'll also throw 'canoeing' into the ring here as that is also bloody hard. The exciting part though was that we got to meet Mike Bullivant who presents Rough Science (the older grey haired presenter, who also did Coast).
