The treaty will certainly aid the prince’s move to retake the Scottish throne with 10,000 soldiers and technical officers promised to his campaign…. </li></ul>
  • 6. The live segment <ul><li>After the initial intro you have a number of choices – you can ‘throw’ to a pre recorded segment, continue a Q&amp;A session with the anchor, turn and do a live interview, or tell the rest of the story yourself. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t forget, in TV, at the end of your answer, if you are throwing back to the studio for another question, you should say the anchor’s name, so they know it’s their turn to talk. </li></ul><ul><li>Eg … with 10,000 soldiers and technical officers promised to his campaign, Andrew? </li></ul>
