Bookers and Producers please read:

Information, commentary 
AND
broadcast contributions are produced
on the following basis:

In live broadcast news assignments, there are often complete media news blackouts in the early stages of any incident, small or large.

YOU hire me to infill, professionally speculate and make sense of the developing story. I provide professional access to my home ISDN circuit which you may dial up on ISDN 01733 345020.

As in any professional arrangement. My fee based services are guided by NUJ Freelance Rates, and individually negotiated professional rates. I carry professional indemnity insurance which is applied to my contributions.

All I ask is that Producers and Bookers IN advance send me an email confirming all details and the fee rrate. This ensures insurance is in place.

I charge for disbursements ie travel, etc., THIS WE WILL AGREE, PRIOR TO ANY FORM OF BOOKING.  Simply if we have not negotiated and agreed the terms of the contract, the enquiry is not a confirmed, shadow or pencil booking.  
 
I hold (and pay for) professional writers and legal expenses insurance, and I finance the BT ISDN2 twin unbundled lines, Glensound ISDN mixers, and installation. That is why I respectfully request a premium to cover the monthly outgoings.

I can optionally direct dial up your studio ISDN line if you have any problems your end in making the codecs work...ideally a connection from your end is the usual way ahead.

So I have sufficient unused bundled ISDN minutes, to offer back.

I am a life Member of the National Union of Journalists and hold a current International press card issued by the UK Press Card Authority Ltd. 

Backgounding:

Very often a request from a broadcast and/or media organisation, is a precursor to an expert supposition, or think piece, as their own correspondent is possibly on the way to the locus of the incident.

Or it could be that an urgent deadline needs to be met. My professional services are contracted as a recognised reliable and often quoted source.

Newsgathering:

Early information is always sketchy, invariably incomplete, sometimes inaccurate or just plain wrong. Over the years, I have built up information resources, to assist my thinking.
 
There also may also be elements of deliberate misinformation ( or dare we say downright misspeaks! ) to media sources from an interested party. 

It is simply like 'walking on eggshells' to drill down to the very essence of the information, and get the meaning over, in a matter of two  to eight minutes, live on air,(essentially working at the rate of 120 words a minute, and multiples thereof). 
 
The commentary/talks pieces (and in some cases recorded actuality) provided, often attempt to explain difficult technical scenarios, in terms that 'the average man/woman on the street' will understand, and therefore has to be devoid of accepted usual industry jargon and complex technical content.

In short, it all has to be carefully explained or lesser elements if too complex, mentally edited out during the live 2-way.  

Very often known information has to be deliberately held back, especially where the next-of-kin has yet to be informed, or a formal legal process has been started, or it cannot be independently verified.

This last item often results being 'flamed' on some aviation or technical websites, but it 'goes with the turf' as they say. Some information must remain sealed. 

Often 'the chat room jockeys' - no disrespect intended -  will hear one voice piece out of context, or will not have been following any or all of the contributions, some ranging over a period of weeks or months.

Many live stories frequently twist and turn, before the truth of the matter is finally arrived at.  


In terms of expert knowledge, frequent 'backgrounders' are carried on my aviation security website, (the link is at the top of this page) and where unintentional, misleading or technically incorrect matter gets through, or an established agency report discredited, then I will always attempt to correct and update the matter, and usually add a detailed backgrounder to my aviation blog pages.

This has advantages as if a particular scenario is presented at short notice then a simple search of my aviation blog, will bring up the information sought.

The Technicals:

I have an ISDN2 twin line (Integrated Services Digital Network), essentially a remote radio studio, set up at home, so I am usually available around the clock.


The ISDN2 paired line in turn is linked to a professional Glensound GSGC5 ISDN Mixer, enabling me to hear the remote producer/gallery talkback in one ear of the headset earphones, and the programme feed a few seconds in advance of transmission in the other ear. 

I also have a second 'flyaway' Glensound GSGC5 FLIGHTCASED UNIT WHICH CAN BE DRYHIRED. Used for corporate work or PR company roleplay. It also acts as a back-up.

Essentially the use of ISDN sounds as though I am physically in your own radio station studio rather than back at my own remote location squawking down a tinny iphone or unreliable VoIP connection - prone to drop out!!!

ISDN is still the preferred professional quality audio feed -  as unlike digital VoIP systems, there is absolutely no drop out, or annoying time delay on the ISDN2 circuit.

In time, VoIP systems will improve, but we can expect to wait another 8+ years or so for this to happen.

I also proactively employ digital tablets, a battery of smart TVs and computer screens, my associate will also 'live' desk research if already on air. 

 Frequently we can confirm, prove, and in the process break news on air, sometimes before news agencies are up and running with it.

I am on a very high speed cabled Virgin Media broadband service.

Indeed news agencies contact me for verification and comment. I am fed and source information from and by, many industry contacts and industry professionals, who trust me to use their information responsibly as required.


Sometimes the ISDN circuit cannot technically be set up at the remote end, possibly an in-vision presence is required, so a SKYPE link [JULIAN.BRAY.UK] on a very high speed digital server is used. I used an uprated camera independent of the laptop, so it can correctly be set at eye-level or however the Director thinks fit. The backdrop is a corner of my library and backlight/keylighting is set up.

 This connects ( as does the ISDN) to most places in the world. In addition my Skype link is already linked to major world broadcasters..

Not all broadcasts are from home, so a duplicate flight-cased 'GLENSOUND' kit is maintained, ready to deliver, which can be transported and connected into any ISDN line (for example large hotels, airports and sports stadia usually have a resident isdn line for hire) as both the GLENSOUND units are DUAL CODEC and will automatically detect the remote end codec type. 

The two units can of course be combined and used at either end of the same ISDN circuit, where for example a high quality audio, by say the Chairman, needs to be relayed to broadcast live to workers in a different country.

In a noisy sports and or air show environment, we would use Coles noise cancelling ribbon lip mics.  

 
If television camera or VJ's  requires a live or pre-recorded 4K quality video feed, from my home location, the local 4K uplink mast is nearby (3 minutes) BBC, ITV, SKY and Agency television cameramen can all live uplink directly from it.
