Welcome to use water. Later in the programme: the leader of the Labour


Party. BBC journalists fear the name of the Labour leader, were


they are and the importance of staying on the ball at all times.


First, a complaint from use watch readers. The appearance of news


reaches far from their regular location. Last Friday saw Fiona


Bruce in Athens. The world is watching as Greece prepares to


vote... Other BBC correspondents were also on the spot covering


Greece's election which led some viewers to question the reason of


their presence. He raised what BBC News had to say. Fiona Bruce was


presenting a booking at great public opinion ahead of the crucial


vote. The elections have a much importance. Presenting from grace


underlined the significance and helped me was connect with the


story. I enjoyed by Bill Worrall and Brenda Key. Did a fear no's


presence will be catered for the story? -- Fiona. No. I thought that


she was eye candy for the majority of the viewing public. The


reporters you had already based there had a greater depth of


knowledge of the situation. It was very important. What did you make


of it? I agree. I think she distracted me from concentrating on


the programme. Why was she there? You were spending time worrying


about that rather than what she was saying? Yes. We have had people


there for quite some time. They have been reporting. We have


understood everything. All of a sudden Fiona Bruce shows up. Was


she on holidays? I do not think it was necessary. As a licence payer


what do you think of the cost? It is not a huge cost but an extra


cost. I would like to see the BBC give us an indication of the actual


cost. I am not sure how she trouble there. I expect it was not steerage


class. She probably had a night in a hotel. It would not have been a


budget hotel. I cannot see the cost of that adding one iota to the


presentation of the programme. I have seen this so many times in the


past. I thought it had been avoided and the BBC had announced they


would not continue to do this. It seemed to be very prevalent.


did do a story which I saw myself with the family of a taxi driver. A


human story about how difficult life is for Greek citizens. Maybe


she added a bit more than standing there for the news. I don't think.


You trail a programme that says when a story is breaking that you


have people on the ground. Why do you have to ship people in? These


people around the ground. They have more knowledge. I do not agree. I


think it is an absolute waste of money. Bill, your final brief


message to the editors who do this? I believe that they should take


deep consideration of these sorts of abuse and avoid sending these


are highly -- highly paid his readers that could be better spent


reading the news at home. Thank you. There have been plenty of health


stories this week including one on Arrow website. On the main health


page we carried the headline, council raised -- cancer risk for


tea drinkers. Men who are heavy tea drinkers may be more likely to


develop prostate cancer. In smaller print the team said it did not know


if tea was a risk factor. This was overdue sensationalism. Writers


need to learn the difference between correlation and causation.


The news reporter despite the news report that more than seven cups of


tea could develop prostate cancer. Four out of 100 men develop


prostate cancer. More than seven cups of tea increases this to six


out of 100 men. That is not an increased risk. It is a 2% increase


of risk which is not statistically significant. The BBC needs to


question stories rather than grabbing unfounded headlines.


Another story brought a favourable reaction. Her what is the critical


problem in the way the NHS handles people? Caroline Anthony got in


touch with us to say it is brilliant that the issue of mental


health was discussed. I think mental health needs to be discussed


more openly. The BBC launched its very own college of journalism to


train its own staff and journalists and media students elsewhere. On


Tuesday it relaunched its website in response. -- in response to


significant advances. With me is the editor of the College of


journalism website. Matthew, why are you relaunching it and what


they try to achieve? The existing website had been sitting on some


old technology. The design, feel and look of the website was quite


old fashioned. The content and authority of that material was


terrific but we needed to move it on to a platform that was stable


and robust and bring it into BBC Design feel. Can you train


journalists online? Is very danger that they will go through a


mechanical way? The website is not about models. It is about informal


learning. We know that a lot of journalists learned by talking with


other journalists. Hadaway do this Shi'ite Hadaway use my camera.


We're trying to replicate that feel. We're trying to say, here are some


useful tips. They can look at it in their downtime and look at how the


best in the BBC do their job. Should the BBC licence fee be


paying for the training of media students? The BBC has an obligation


to train the industry. This is exactly what we're doing with the


College of journalism website. We have sister websites and the rest


of the training arm. How much does Wallabies cost? I suspect malty


millions. The Academy has a training budget of $27 million.


That covers every bit of training that the BBC does from health and


safety to broadcast. It is a huge responsibility. It seems like an


awful lot of money. Is it good value? We are incredible value for


what we do. The BBC has an important role. We recognise the


role that we have been maintaining quality across the industry. The


website club side of the UK is behind a subscription wall. In


America, Australia and Japan they paid to access the material.


Members of the audience in the UK he would like to see the issues and


values can look-in and C? Yes. That is what is fantastic for journalism


students across the country. They can see how the best BBC


journalists do their job. The wry insights from our leading producers.


They are offering their skills and expertise on the Web site for


everybody to access. The! -- Thank you.. Despite all the training BBC


journalists sometimes get it wrong. The Labour leader was named on air


as David Miller band rather than Ed Miliband. This week it happened


again. The leader of the Labour Party has made an this track a


personal attack on David Cameron. Brian Duffy in Melbourne on Sunday,


he is not the leader of the Labour Party. You may like to tell the


newscaster. Consider it done. Perhaps the presenters on Breakfast


also need a reminder. They are not quite sure why they are.
