Cos the piece doesn't have the same meaning if he is in the studio.

Or the need to fly over all those over to Japan to just cover Ireland's 5 Rugby World Cup games, they should have just ditched coverage.

When something like this happens, does it mean that there is a team of Rte staff flown out with him with cameras, sound gear etc, or do they hire local people out there to do it?
Switch on your TV.
He is delivering in spades now.

Networks usually have a man/woman in certain hot spots. These are contractors, generally on skype. But I suppose money is no object for RTE.

There is a team stationed in Brussels. Tony Connolly plus whatever crew he needs, camera, sound, engineer and perhaps 2-3 producers?

The obvious thing to do would be to send David alone and link up with the existing Brussels team, but being RTÉ I suspect he flew over with a posse of at least 5 or 6, and all stayed in a nice hotel that evening before flying back this morning.

Tony is the producer.

Camera / Sound / Engineer would be the one person.

He very rarely does outside broadcasts, a room rented in a TV station with a Satellite uplink to RTE is where he does most his reports from.

4 pundits and a presenter in the studio for the Rugby. Michael Lynagh flown in, flights, hotels etc paid for. Jamie Heaslip flown out to Japan, flights, hotels paid for.

I thought they had money problems?
