I really enjoy watching BBC click, it's probably one of my favourite factual programmes and I regularly tune in to watch it on the BBC iPlayer on the Wii each week.
There's only one thing that spoils my viewing pleasure though and it's TV presenters who mumble. I often find it quite difficult to follow what Spencer Kelly is talking about.
He often starts of talking about something and then suddenly starts to mumble or lowers his voice making it difficult to hear what he is saying. I could of course turn up the volume but then it would be loud for the rest of the programme. Has anyone else noticed this?
To some degree Kate Russel does this as well, although not nearly as bad. I don't find the Webscape part of the programme that interesting though as it's mostly full of gimmicky sites that to me appear more targeted towards the fairer sex.
Yes, I know what you're thinking. It's your flaming hearing mate, you're probably going a but mutton geoff! Well no, actually it's not. My hearing is actually very good and I don't think I can blame it on me watching Click on the Wii/iPlayer either. Everything else I watch on it is fine, it's definitely the TV presenters in this case.
No offence to Spencer. He seems a pretty knowlegeable guy and the stuff on BBC Click is really interesting. I just wish the dialogue was all spoken at the same volume level and with a consistent tone. Maybe they could do something in the production suite before broadcasting the programme.
Come on man... speak up for goodness sake. As a 'TV presenter' we actually want to be able to HEAR what you've got to say!
