The stupid "nodding presenter" shot
« on: April 19, 2016, 09:46:03 PM »
Just watching a program on "Yesterday" about the Yangtze river dam.

Well interesting.

They've just used the stupid "noding presenter" shot.

Every producer in television seems obliged to use this shot for every program.

Just watch, I guarantee anything on the telly at some point you will get the presenter gazing into the camera and "nodding" with a stupid look on his or her face which is meant to convey "I know just what you mean"

Very, very annoying!

Not as bad as people telling said presenter or camera something, and nodding while they are doing so.  Mind you, nothing is as bad as those people who say "Yeah?" at the end of every statement.

And not forgetting those footballer interviews - where every sentence has an '...and errrrr' or a 'welll......' in it.
