Thanks David for your comment. This subject is something that I think will become increasingly important to us over the coming years. How to use audio and video as part of a larger package? - specifcially for us for online research training purposes. As for the quality of the product we currently have the difficulty of the live stream video being of low quality resolution meaning that there is a limit to how polished the final copy can possibly look. This is definately something we would like to improve!

Matt: As someone who spent his formative years in journalism and then the best part of 45 years as a producer-director-writer of short films and documentaries, I reckon to know a bit about programme production. All that finished about seven years ago when I was looking around for something else to fill my time - and finished up training and becoming a City of London Tour Guide and Lecturer, going on to do London studies for another year, spending 4 years at Birkbeck getting a BA in history and now coming to the end of a two-year Masters course in Sport, History and Culture at De Montfort University. I believe that as primary source material visual and oral recordings can be integrated into research projects. You have touched on an issue which is so important. Even in these days of point-and-shoot digital movie-making, it is still necessary to have a basic grasp of technology and how to film and record events and interviews to an acceptable standard. Wobblyscope, out-of-focus interviews, sound distortion, poor lighting and other inferior film-making skills can seriously undermine the quality of what could be an interesting subject. Would you submit an essay with words scratched out, poor grammar and spelling mistakes! Of course no. So the same standards of clarity and and story construction should apply to audio and visual material. I must stop. I sound like someone climbing onto a hobby horse but I hope these thoughts do make sense..
