I think this is a silly bit of "journalism". You can't hear Kay (who would want to) and neither are the poor people she is interviewing from the silly skycopter. and we can't hear the people she is interviewing either.

why can't they just get a live feed from the studio and interview them like that so people can hear them?

silly silly silly

I agree, you can't even see the place she is really, just her in a chopper, doesn't make much sense. also, all that pollution in the sky. how unnecessary. :angry:

Yes, and don't they have the Sky Travel channel and specific programmes for this?

It's hardly world-wide breaking news.

Looks to me like it's an excuse for Kay to have a holiday :angry:

It seems a pointless filler to me , If I want to see some ugly riding on a chopper I'll watch marie ashby on itv instead.

Its the most prominent use for the sky! copter which has been a white elephant so far.

This morning 'hover 'was daft, visibility was about 100 metres and you couldnt see anything of the park. The guy she interviewed was only interested in plugging alton towers and was boring to listen to.

What they gonna do if the weather gets worse?, ground it.
