Ola! wefcpug tonight - exploring wilderness

Back to my keyboard after nearly a week's abstinence, with nought but an iPod touch and a dodgy wifi at the nearest coffee-bar, just in time to remind you all of the Oktoberfest wefcpug, which begins our 5th Glorious Year.

So it's tonight at the usual RV point - BBC reception (rear), 7pm - and for those of you not reading this on Monday 6th October, well you're too late. Names and blood samples to Richard so you're on the list, as usual.

And this year we begin with...

Renowned FCP editor Dilesh Korya has finally been persuaded to talk about what he's been doing - and it's 'Wilderness Explored', another mega BBC Bristol series, which promises 'breathtaking imagery and powerful narrative'. So the camerawork and narration will be good, then...

but there's more...

Richard will be blurring out faces (not a reference to visits to the bar) with, need I say more, Motion. An essential skill for any doc. editors these days.

and as the comedy warm-up...

I will attempt a plain-folks' introduction to BBC R&D's next Big Idea (which has been around for some time, admittedly) - and explain why we'll all be getting upgrades to the iPlayer next year. Dirac's the name, compression's the game.

And finally, we solve all known problems brought to the table. Possibly.
