This program follows a real day of news gathering and production at WHDH, the CBS Boston affiliate. It vividly illustrates the roles performed by dozens of people in shaping an evening newscast. The director, technical director, floor manager and assistant director work under intense time pressure with tape editors, camera operators, audio mixers and engineers to bring in an evening newscast on time and to length. Experience the creation of graphics, production of a live remote, the use of robot cameras and color keying on the set. Stories are added, changed and dropped during the course of the newscast to meet shifting conditions.
