Still, it was JFK’s assassination in 1963 that set the ball rolling: a broadcast was interrupted, although only with a testcard and the stentorian tones of legendary US newscaster Walter Cronkite because the cameras took 15 minutes to warm up; from that point on, CBS’s cameras remained on for days. CNN invented the concept of rolling news 17 years later and the first Gulf War made the idea palatable for a British audience, but it’s the recollections of the Lockerbie bombing that prove most revealing as a collision of professional excitement and real-life tragedy that clearly still haunts some of the contributors.
A Japanese restaurant in Old Street, serving up grub from the hot and cold sides of the region: sushi, tempura, udon/soba. Plus a few sweets, including yuzu creme brulee and various mochi.
Venue says: “A cosy, minimalist Japanese restaurant in Shoreditch with both traditional and modern approaches.”
