Intake Editor Ian Richardson phones Tim "The Pony" Lllewellyn to see what happened to that piece he promised two hours ago. Newsreel editor Luke Albarin wonders if he'll have to fill the gap with another Harold Briley despatch. Regional editor Geoff Lane politely points out an error to the Centre Desk. Chief-sub Nigel Margerison tries to remember where he put that bit of tape on Albania. Tony Rudolf (background) explains the merits of Moldovan peasant poetry to a fellow newsroom typist.
