THE RAI UK NEW OFFICE

LONDON – The Italian public broadcasting service RAI continues to support the news office in London, although the spending review caused some limitations for public expenditure.

The RAI UK news office in London has just moved to Westminister, a strategic position – close to Parliament – which allows RAI to get the most important news immediately. The news correspondent is Marco Varvello: “We have to select news that will appeal to an Italian audience. The office makes from 2 – 8 reports per day”.

Mr Varvello explained that, thanks to the progress of technology, making a report takes only one hour, if media content is previously available. Also, it is possibile to cover a news story without leaving the newsroom: if you want to appear to be outside, you can take advantage of green screens and chroma key, which allows you to change the background.

The news sources are mostly newspapers and Sky TG24, which is really important for the images. When the correspondents have all the material ready, the report is edited with Final Cut, a professional application developed by Apple.

The digitizing process has reduced production times (and also the size of the offices), new digital technologies have also reduced research times.
