I’ve just finished watching the second episode of the documentary about Canterbury Cathedral.
And to tell you the truth, I’m shocked!
The amount of ‘mistakes’ I picked up was quite amazing.
There were many times during an interview where the camera zooms in from a mid shot to a close up or pans across. Now, I’m not the most professional person and I know how hard it is to get that perfect shot. But for this programme that was being made for the BBC and shown on National Television, it surprised me how much actually made it through the edit. That’s just my technical, televisual side coming out 😉 One interview did make me laugh, when the Easter service was shown. A very unstereotypical couple who had never stepped foot in the grounds before did provide a giggle.
Overall though, I have enjoyed the programme. I always enjoy walking through the grounds as a shortcut to the town and it amazes it me how much history there is behind the Cathedral and how much history is still being made in the current day. It also explains why there was so many big production lorry’s lurking outside the Cathedral last year! Talk about a missed opportunity….
