littleblip: December 2003 Archives
As we say in the Old Country. Off to Norway tomorrow - all I seem to have done this autumn/winter is fly back and forth. Fantastic! Hoping for freezing weather with lots of ice and snow (skating, which I do badly and skiing, which I'm ok at) but nae such luck. Cold but no downpours on the west coast.
Have a fantastic holiday and Godt Nytt Ar!
Thank you for all your great comments about the programme, it seems to be the general consensus round the building so I can safely say we're chuffed with that. Did the blog give you any insight into the making of a feature?
Would be fun to do another blog stylee programme, from a totally different perspective. Any suggestions?
Have I told you about BBC's other blogging project? Check out www.bbc.co.uk/islandblogging
Martin from The Copydesk was telling me World Service are also getting involved in blogging. Will have to check & find a link to that.
Am updating a feature I made in August, due to go out on 2/1-03. It's called "After the Raid", it's the story of Karen Serir and her husband who were arrested under the Terrorism Act earlier this year. You see? no rest for the wicked. In between I'm planning Xmas presents.
It's done! Blogday is now up and running and sounding good. Tra la la...
Had some techy problems tonite dubbing programme onto CD but Graham saved the day. Graham aka superwhizz editor (production coordinator in BBC speak) fused all the funky sounds together. Many thanks!
I know tomorrow is going to be a bit of an anti-climax after days and weeks of putting this all together. Kinda strange that no one is left in the office either. Probably means more time to read and write blogs I expect.
It's late so I'll be scooting off home, think I'll sleep late tomorrow... mmm...
"I've got Blogday down to about 1hr 26 mins per this lunch time. That means over an hour to lose by tomorrow hopefully. Have decided not to use the audio blogs. Listened again this morning, content in some of them is great but quality is not. Shame.
Faz is in the process of finding archive and clips for me, have got some funky music but can't begin to experiment with that until I've chopped the programme down some more.
It is very difficult. I've now met some of you and am familiar with all your voices and stories. Maybe we should have made a two-parter? Will try and include everyone.
Has anyone heard the trails? There are currently 3 versions, one on the language of blogging, one with Polkadot and another with Heartland.
Hopefully, this is me online again.
Going for a wander down Byres rd to get some lunch, usually make my own but wasn't really inspired this morning."
