A touch over 60 years ago BBC newsreader, Richard Baker, introduced Britain’s first ever television news bulletin. Richard wasn’t allowed to appear on screen for months, for fear that any inappropriate facial expressions could compromise the truth. Instead, the viewer saw still photos of any events that were deemed news worthy. Of course today BBC News has become a global institution, with news bulletins reaching millions of people around the globe.
It is in this vein of broadcast innovation that today we launch BVTV. Basically, we’ve decided to have a go at producing a short video, reviewing the week that was in bond markets and having a look at this week’s major economic events. And unlike Richard, I was allowed to appear on screen.
