Airport. More and that throughout the evening. Now on BBC News it's


time for Newswatch with Samira Ahmed.


Welcome to the programme. This week, with Wednesday's dramatic


helicopter crash would have received extensive coverage had it


not taken place in central London? We cook up another row with


horsemeat on the menu in the studio. Thing is like studying and looking


after their children. What was that again? The problems


of hearing what is being heard above background noise.


First, Wednesday morning's news coverage was dominated by this


story. Your car is on fire, get out of the car. In the heart of London,


at the height of the rush-hour a street is engulfed in flames. This


is burning fuel and wreckage from a helicopter that smashed into a busy


roof -- Road. My heavy cock -- helicopter has just come down on


the road. Dramatic pictures and a tragic accident. Dealers have wider


concerns about the way it was Several viewers, from Moseley


outside the capital made a There was also a reaction to


coverage of the trial of nine men accused of being involved in a


child sex trafficking ring in Oxford, in charge they denied.


Oxford is best known for its academic achievement, but this case


centres on a brutal, hidden world where it is claimed girls as young


as 11 was sexually exploited by a Last week, we mentioned Newsnight


upset animal lovers by showing scenes of a pig being slaughtered.


This week the programme showed another animal under the knife, but


this time it was a chef who was invited into the studio to cook and


serve some horsemeat. I will have a go. Looking at how this got into


beefburgers, it would improve the appearance of the beefburger,


adding it to the needs, you would look like you are getting less


fatty mince. It is excellent, it tastes like best steak. The stunt


followed the revelation that several supermarkets, including


Tesco have been selling beefburgers which contain horse DNA. Sales of


horsemeat has boomed since the story broke, but some dealers were


Stop now, can you hear me clearly? Hopefully you can because I am


speaking to from the quiet of a studio with no background noise,


music or sound effects. But sometimes presenters speak over the


musical background, which some viewers say makes it harder to here.


It is a practice employed in the headlines on the news channel every


half an hour. Boeing insists there 787 Dreamliner


are safe. Ahead of the Prime Minister's key


speech on Europe tomorrow... Detectives investigating


allegations... Speaking over the drumbeats really


It is a particular issue if you have some form of hearing loss, a


problem that affects one in six of the population. And when presenters


and correspondents are speaking from outside the studio, things can


get noisy. These are reports from Breakfast. If it is a manic. 125


people putting together the sofas. And they are putting together the


frames. Surprise, springs. You can see the


production going on this morning. This company has been going on for


20 years. The majority feel it works for them


and it allows them to do things like studying and looking after


children's. It is turning a noisy India... A dealer contacted us


about those reports and he joins us now with his wife. What is the core


of your concern about these kind of location reports? The main thing is,


the aim must be to transmit information, but with the excess


noise it is difficult to hear what is being said and receive that


information. It goes against the whole point of doing it. You felt


the noise was too much? Was there an additional issue for you? I do


have a slight hearing loss. Every day, it is not enough to even


notice. But when I am trying to concentrate on what is being said,


which I do find interesting and important for my concerns, it is


very irritating to have to strain to listen, and sometimes it is


impossible to here at all. A BBC gave us a brief statement. They did


not come on to talk. And it said, we want our viewers to enjoy the


programmes and tried to apply the highest technical standards to


everything. Inevitably, some environments are noisier than


others. That is fair enough, but if the level of noise into fears with


the absorption of the information they are trying to transmit, surely


that negates the whole point of the interview? People might say, even


if it is just a limited amount of hearing loss, it is still a


minority concern and most people can sort of make it out?


business is probably less than two by an older age range and some of


other things on the programme. Pensioners, others are probably


already on their way to work anyway. What do you think of the idea, some


environments are going to be noisy, they don't set out to make it


harder? Sure Lee they can find a quiet corner and say to people,


just for a few minutes, can you not come across with a palette a fall


of metal trays? What the BBC has done with Breakfast, they are not


just in London, and they get out of the studio. I wonder in the end


should you need to accept that there will be situations where it


will be too noisy for some dealers? To a certain extent I agree. It is


a question of balance. I find repeatedly I am having to strain to


listen. By example, a couple of days ago there was a broadcast on


King Cross station on the concourse, in the rush-hour. 10 seconds after


the interviewer starts talking, the Tannoy comes in with station


announcements. That was louder than the interviewee. I am struck that


the BBC gave a very brief statement, do you think that is a failure to


take your views on board? They acknowledge they sometimes get it


wrong but they try? I thought the principle of interviewing people at


a factory, you could have the journalist going round in the noisy


bit, but have the interview in a quieter room? You should be an


interview planet. Thanks to you both are coming on and raising


those criticisms. Finally, and staying with Breakfast,


Thursday's programme fan good cause to look back to 1983.


It was the first pound coin, the first wheel clampers and the first


Breakfast television. The first edition of the first, regular


breakfast television programme in Europe. Breakfast-time held a


mirror to the world, which in 1983 included cabbage Patch dolls.


Happy memories. As Breakfast looked back, viewers voiced unflattering
