(Cut to a newsreader in a 'News at Nine' set with a bare
light bulb hanging in shot. He wears only an old blanket round his
shoulders. He is shivering.)
Newsreader: The BBC wishes to deny rumors that it is
going into liquidation. Mrs. Kelly, who owns the flat where they
live, has said that they can stay on till the end of the month ...
(he is handed a piece of paper) and we've just heard that Huw
Weldon's watch has been accepted by the London Electricity Board and
transmissions for this evening can be continued as planned. (he
coughs and pulls the blanket tighter round his shoulders) That's
all from me so... goodnight.
(Knocking on the door.)
Mr. Kelly's Voice: Are you going to be in there all night?
Newsreader: It's just a bulletin, Mr. Kelly... and now back
to the Story (banging)... All right!
