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

:00:26.:00:33.

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

:00:33.:00:37.

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

:00:37.:00:41.

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

:00:41.:00:46.

reaches far from their regular location. Last Friday saw Fiona

:00:46.:00:52.

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

:00:52.:00:57.

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

:00:57.:01:04.

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

:01:04.:01:09.

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

:01:10.:01:12.

presenting a booking at great public opinion ahead of the crucial

:01:12.:01:21.

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

:01:21.:01:24.

underlined the significance and helped me was connect with the

:01:24.:01:33.

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

:01:33.:01:42.

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

:01:42.:01:48.

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

:01:48.:01:52.

reporters you had already based there had a greater depth of

:01:52.:01:57.

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

:01:57.:02:05.

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

:02:05.:02:11.

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

:02:11.:02:18.

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

:02:18.:02:22.

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

:02:22.:02:28.

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

:02:28.:02:37.

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

:02:37.:02:42.

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

:02:42.:02:51.

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

:02:51.:02:57.

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

:02:57.:03:03.

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

:03:03.:03:13.

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

:03:13.:03:19.

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

:03:19.:03:24.

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

:03:24.:03:30.

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

:03:30.:03:37.

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

:03:37.:03:43.

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

:03:43.:03:53.
:03:53.:03:53.

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

:03:53.:03:59.

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

:03:59.:04:06.

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

:04:06.:04:11.

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

:04:11.:04:17.

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

:04:17.:04:24.

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

:04:24.:04:34.
:04:34.:04:34.

deep consideration of these sorts of abuse and avoid sending these

:04:34.:04:42.

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

:04:42.:04:47.

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

:04:47.:04:53.

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

:04:53.:04:58.

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

:04:58.:05:03.

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

:05:03.:05:09.

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

:05:09.:05:15.

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

:05:15.:05:19.

need to learn the difference between correlation and causation.

:05:19.:05:25.

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

:05:25.:05:29.

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

:05:29.:05:34.

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

:05:35.:05:40.

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

:05:40.:05:46.

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

:05:47.:05:51.

question stories rather than grabbing unfounded headlines.

:05:51.:05:57.

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

:05:57.:06:03.

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

:06:03.:06:06.

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

:06:06.:06:12.

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

:06:12.:06:18.

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

:06:18.:06:23.

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

:06:23.:06:29.

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

:06:29.:06:35.

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

:06:35.:06:41.

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

:06:41.:06:46.

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

:06:46.:06:51.

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

:06:51.:06:57.

old fashioned. The content and authority of that material was

:06:57.:07:01.

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

:07:01.:07:09.

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

:07:09.:07:14.

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

:07:14.:07:19.

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

:07:19.:07:25.

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

:07:25.:07:35.
:07:35.:07:35.

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

:07:35.:07:41.

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

:07:42.:07:48.

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

:07:48.:07:54.

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

:07:54.:08:04.
:08:04.:08:07.

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

:08:07.:08:12.

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

:08:12.:08:17.

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

:08:17.:08:23.

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

:08:23.:08:29.

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

:08:29.:08:35.

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

:08:35.:08:40.

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

:08:40.:08:46.

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

:08:46.:08:51.

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

:08:51.:08:58.

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

:08:59.:09:03.

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

:09:03.:09:08.

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

:09:08.:09:15.

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

:09:15.:09:21.

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

:09:21.:09:25.

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

:09:25.:09:30.

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

:09:30.:09:34.

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

:09:34.:09:43.

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

:09:43.:09:50.

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

:09:50.:09:54.

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

:09:54.:10:00.

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

:10:01.:10:09.

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

:10:09.:10:13.

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

:10:14.:10:19.

newscaster. Consider it done. Perhaps the presenters on Breakfast

:10:20.:10:29.
:10:30.:10:31.

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

:10:31.:10:38.

recorded his album at the famous Abbey Road studios here in London,

:10:38.:10:48.
:10:48.:10:51.

I am not in London. Finally, one golden rule of broadcasting is to

:10:51.:10:58.

look like you're interested. Ben Brown seems to be struggling.

:10:58.:11:02.

investigation describes the situation as a scandal. If one of

:11:02.:11:06.

your wondered what was Ben Brown having a yawn for on the BBC News

:11:06.:11:10.

channel? I hope you're not overworking him. It looks very odd

:11:10.:11:15.
