BBC 10 Oclcock news featured an item on plastics in Midway - David Shukman.
Yep it works.
Well why else would the studio go live to the reporter.
It wasn't a breaking story.
I can only guess they were trying out a new sat link back, because the feed from David was pretty clear with no drop out or buffering, which usually occurs with the portable sat-phone links.
Carrying pics over the net/sat without breaking the bank is the holy grail for comms and that's what Duncan Whiteman tells us his working on.
But for the meantime, we should expect some more breaking sat link stories from the Beep.
