The Bits They Left Out

Found this post by Alastair Campbell very interesting — all about his experience of appearing on Top Gear and the bits they left out of his interview.

What particularly struck me were his comments that Twitter and other digital platforms enabled him to tell the story of what was edited out of the final TV show. In other words, the internet meant the full interview was still “broadcast” in a way that it wouldn’t/couldn’t have been a few years ago. What’s more, people online are talking about this material that didn’t make it onto the TV show.

It just goes to show that interviews aren’t necessarily linear any more — the bits they left out can be just as important.
