Black Lives Matter - Peaceful Oxford Protest

Updated: Aug 6, 2021

Today I covered two stories for BBC South Today.

The first was a story in Aylesbury about a leisure boat owner who has been told she cannot start her service again despite other similar companies starting back up after Coronavirus Pandemic.

After filming I edited the piece in my van with Journalist Jeremy Stern recording the VO at a safe distance.

The second story was setting up and recording a headline live covering the Black Lives Matter peaceful protest in Oxford. Thousands of people gathered outside Oriel college to demand the removal of a statue of imperialist Cecil Rhodes.

A group of councillors earlier backed the campaign to remove it and called on Oxford University to "decolonise".

Twenty-six Oxford city councillors signed a letter saying the figure at Oriel College was "incompatible" with the city's "commitment to anti-racism".

You can see both these stories below.
