Sometimes Things Just Don’t Come Together!

January 28, 2010

After an afternoon of catching buses, today I’ve had to accept the above, sometimes things just don’t come together.

So I should explain a little! I was making a newsday piece for my University (to be broadcast tomorrow) about proposed closures of bus routes in Stoke-On-Trent.

I thought it would be nice to go on one of these bus routes and chat to people about how losing the bus would affect them. Unfortunately, despite getting some great on board footage of the bus, there was hardly anyone using the service, meaning my great story idea turned into chatting to one lovely lady about how she would miss the bus. Not really substantial enough for a news report…

But still, hope remains as tomorrow morning, some of my loyal colleagues should be returning to the bus station to complete the report (we’ve been told many more people use the buses in the morning), so there may be hope for it yet!

If they do make it, be sure to read StaffsLive to see the article and also many other exciting newsday stories tomorrow!
