Thanks Alex, there'll be a blog about the One Show also but I didn't really do much. Just quickly showed Jo the presenter how to shoot a plate and then have a go himself. His test plate was really good, shame about his plate that was of his fellow presenters. Just goes to show.... practice, practice and practice some more.
