I arrived at the “Meta” at 4:00 o'clock, and had about an hour of free time. I then went to the second building called the “Fernsehwerft”. Here, I was able to experience how the voice-over for reports is recorded. As it is, the narrator was in a soundproof “box”, adjacent to the editing suite. Here, the speaker has direct contact with the editing room, and the report is transmitted to him on a television screen. He then reads the script. This normally takes about 15 minutes, as there are occasionally mistakes in the script, or the narrator misreads something.
I then went to the editorial office, which was very exciting because I had never been in such a room before, and had only known them from television. I also got to go downstairs into the studio, and meet the host, Claus Strunz. Then, I spent the next hours in the editorial room, and watched the different processes that happen there. I got driven home at 11:00 o’clock.
