Saturday breakfast

When you're on air and it's going well, everything feels right. You've done the prep, and the technicals/procedurals have almost been subsumed into your unconscious, so you're not wasting any effort thinking about them.

You probably have a producer who knows how you function best, and the communication between you - verbal and visual - is down to a highly efficient bare minimum.

You're not trying to push things or sound like you're working too hard. Things happen when they should and everything is in the moment.

That what it was like at times this morning. You may disagree - the evidence is up on the BBC iPlayer for the next few days. When things occasionally click, it's one of the best feelings you can get.

****************

Other stuff: I'm working at Inside Out for BBC South, putting together a few investigations which I hope will see the light of day before the end of this series. I've also started reporting again for ITV London, which is great. And we'll hopefully see the return of Caught on Camera for Channel 5, though nothing is confirmed yet.
