Here's an example of the difference between appearance and mundane reality.
We got a couple of calls last night questioning the Ten's decision to put a reporter in a helicopter to cover the Dome story. An outrageous use of public money?! Do we sit here thinking up ways to waste your cash?
Not quite... we have a deal whereby we can use a helicopter for an average of seven hours a week. We were planning to get some shots of the Dome from the air (the best place to see it) for all BBC TV and online outlets and we thought why not get a reporter to go up and see it at no extra cost?
