of shifting formats thanks to it’s fifty one year run. Each time a new Script Editor came in they changed elements of the format, and I can relate that back to what I have been doing for our TV Channel. Part of what has made my role possible is the use of Google Docs as a method of collaborating with each production team and the academic staff on scripts. Each week the team who’s producing the show uploads the script to Google Docs, where it is then shared with myself and any relevant academic staff. Once Everyone is happy with the content, I go through the script checking it over for any errors. One of Google Docs most useful tools from a script editing perspective is “suggest edit”. Rather than just editing the script, I’m able to suggest to the team an alternative, and at a click of a button, it can be applied. With the script being saved to google drive, on the day of the show the computer connected to the auto cue can be booted up, the final script downloaded and put on the auto cue. Overall the challenge of my role is part of the appeal, it adds a lot of pressure to each weeks live show, but in the short weeks of actually doing it, I’ve already learned some vital lessons and now know the direction i wish to move forward in.
