当谈到创造 Because News，Gavin Crawford看着整个池塘。
“When we were first figuring out what will it be and what will we do, I was like,‘Let’s steal the British ideas,’because those are the shows I like,”克劳福德回忆。由克劳福德（Crawford），伊丽莎白·鲍伊（Elizabeth Bowie）和戴维·卡罗尔（David Carroll）共同创立的，长期运行的Radio One计划最近跳入了一个新平台。

Gavin Crawford: When we first started doing the show, I always thought there was a possibility if it worked out it could translate, just simply because there are so many British ones that fulfill those same things. When we were first figuring out what will it be, what will we do, I was like,‘Let’s steal the British ideas,’because those are the shows I enjoy watching. And so we always tried to model it that way, that it would be modular. Then, I guess, partly because it’s me and I like to do voices and characters, we would end up making things like fake movie trailers. But I guess I always had in the back of my mind, if CBC ever wants to do cross-platform stuff, it’s something they could actually manage to do.
GC: Yeah. Basically, Liz and David Carroll came to me and said,‘We’ve got a green light to make a pilot of a news quiz, and we think you’d be a good host for that. Is that something you’d want to do?’Once we had established,‘OK, it’s going to be me,’we tried to figure out what we wanted to do. In my experience of watching those shows, I wanted it to be about the comradery of the panellists. wanted us to be able to tease each other. I don’t want the answers to be necessarily that hard or important. I don’t want to try and solve a refugee crisis. We want to take the ball of news that everyone has and have fun with it where we can and make fun of the people in power. But, in a weird way, they are less game shows than they are talk shows.
I always tell the panellists,‘You don’t have to get the right answer. 您 can say wet socks and a cat, for all I care. 让’s be able to take the time to riff with each other and take up ideas and improvise, the way that a lot of the people on the show are improvisers and comedians.’ So that’s what we like to do and to try and make sure that there’s enough space for that.
GC: There are definitely difficulties that you don’t have on radio. But it wasn’t too hard, because we made a conscious decision not to reinvent the wheel. I like the show the way it is, and if it was on TV, I still want it to be that. The hardest thing was how do we get people in a studio together, with the pandemic, knowing that we have to space everybody eight feet apart?
There are little technical things like how do you just keep a comradery going when you know they’re going to cut to a wide shot, and it’s going to look very wide. Those are things that you have to think of. And then there are weird technical things. If you show a graphic or TV, everything has to be triply sourced and thrust through legal. The hardest thing is clearing everything from the team of lawyers, and being like,‘We need this clip of Trump saying this funny thing.’Whereas on the radio, that’s a five-minute job. And on TV it’s a day and a half.
我听了广播中的最新一集，并注意到那里有一些片段’t on the TV episode.
GC: The radio is always five minutes longer, so just from a time standpoint, there’s always going to be an extra round or something on the radio that doesn’t make it to the TV. I don’t actually mind, because it gives you a reason to see things on different platforms, as opposed to a show that would be the same from one to the other, and you just pick and choose where you listen to it.
您 record and film the show on Thursday, and then you’重新把它准备好，以便在星期日播放电视节目。
GC: It’s a very quick turnaround. That’s why those British panel shows look like that because they’re very quick. 您 don’t get a lot of time to edit it and things like that. There’s a number of things that I’d love to be able to do that we just can’t do time-wise. So, we try to filter in what we can do. But it’s tricky because sometimes the news doesn’t even set itself until Wednesday night. And you’re pulling graphics on a Tuesday afternoon. And of course, everybody wants the most heads up they can get on everything.
GC: Oh yeah. I call it Bad Mood Tuesday, where after a weekend of combing through what’s going on to see what we’ll have the next week, I’m always in a bad mood on Tuesday. Then we try and lift ourselves out of it.‘OK, what will put us in a good mood?’And then we get to joke around about things, and the other writers come in, and then we’re like, great. I feel that’s maybe how the audience also feels. Our job is to be like,‘OK, well, here’s your good news,’Sunday night or Saturday morning when all these things you’ve been hearing about all week. Here’s the way you can hear about them that maybe doesn’t make you want to hide in the woods.
