- Genre – Factual Entertainment
Length 20 x 24 Minute Episodes
With modern technology, and super compact devices, there are some excellent vlogs around (video-blogs for the uninitiated). But you don’t need to hunt to find those gems – we’ll pick some of our personal favourites from around the globe, and let you see the world through a different lens.
As mobile video technology develops at an unbelievable pace, there are an ever growing number of travel vlogs flooding the internet. Let’s be honest, some are terrible, many are quite good, but there are a few that are truly excellent. They can capture the world from a truly unique perspective, and depict it is a fast paced, exciting, or heart-warming way.
Basic Programme Outline
In each episode we’ll pick some of our personal favourites from around the world, and bring you some examples. Links will be included so the viewer can go and see more if they want. We’ll highlight many different kind of vlogs, from the traditional travelogues and destination focussed films, to more creative active videos and presented pieces.
It is also hoped that the vloggers will get involved in the interactivity between the programme and their vlog, publicising the fact that they will be featured on an episode of Best of the Vloggers to their many viewers – and therefore also publicising the broadcast channel the programme is shown on!
This is a half hour programme, with a simple studio based format, bringing internet video items to the viewer. The presenter will welcome viewers to the episode, and then introduce each item chosen for that episode, as well as making brief comments after each is shown.
Researchers will use a variety of methods to find and source suitable vlogs, although an on-screen appeal by the presenter at the end of each episode to get in touch if the viewer has suggestions for future content, will also build content and interactivity as the series progresses.
To ensure variety and a fast pace for a programme that is likely to appeal to a younger audience, in all but exceptional cases the videos will be limited to a maximum of 5 minutes – and most will be shorter. Graphics will highlight the locations on a world map, as well as giving details of the vlogger and where online to find their work.
As mentioned, the presenter will end each episode by thanking the viewers for joining them, and inviting them to get in touch if they have found an excellent vlog they think we should be sharing. There will also be two or three brief clips to highlight what is to come on the next episode.
