Football Family

I've filmed a really enjoyable story with a couple who're both going to Wembley this weekend for the play-offs but have different loyalties. Mike and Fiona Hall have been married for 18 years. He proposed to Fiona, who's a passionate Barnsley fan, on the pitch at Oakwell but Mike is massive Sheffield Wednesday fan! I visited them as they got ready to head to London...

Putting together a self-authored report - where the people in the story tell their own story without using a reporter's voice-over - is always challenging. You need to plan it carefully, making sure the interviewees introduce each part of the story so that there's a beginning, middle and end that fits. I really like to make self-authored packages wherever possible as we reporters are not the story, they are!
