The BBC Culture Show reported on Avenue Q a couple of weeks ago, sadly the spot from the programme, which was on the BBC website, seems to have now been taken down. (any obsessives out there want to track it down?)

It’s a nice piece, but it does highlight to me why I’d rather be blogging than working in TV. The crew were there the same night as I was (1 June) but it took four of them (interviewer, sound guy, camera guy….and err… another guy) an hour or so to get what turned out to be a few seconds on screen. Goodness knows how long it took and how much it cost to produce the whole thing. And to be honest, I’m much more interested in what real people think of the show than whether Sir Cameron Mackintosh thinks he’s taking a risk or not.

Not mine this time. This was shot by "The Freaky Brit" who is one of the guys singing "The Internet is for Porn" in my video. Fantastic stuff – I love the professional interviewer and the size of her sound man's boom mic!
