Private Eye runs a little feature called "Going Live" which captures rather unnecessary live outside broadcasts in the new 24 rolling news environment.
There was a classic just a moment ago on BBC 1's Breakfast. They went live to an umbrella. Well, the umbrella took about 50% of the screen. 20% was Rita Chakrabarti, a further 20% was grass and 10% could be identified by architectural cogniscenti as the side of the House of Parliament.
Nice to know that our licence fee is being well spent.
It was a lovely umbrella though.
