  Conversation One

  W: Tom, what are the stories we’re looking at for the 9 o’clock news tonight?

  M: Well, Lucy, we’ve got an update on South Africa about the regional elections in Transkei. But we’ve run into problems in getting a live report from Adrian in Port Elizabeth。

  W: Never mind. We’ll just run the film and let Kate fill in the details on the news itself. Now what about that story which is breaking in Germany?

  M: Well, it’s still quite difficult to make out exactly what is going on there. It seems that the President and the Prime Minister have seriously fallen out and it is possible that the Prime Minister may be thinking of leaving office。

  W: Have we got anything on film to back up this story?

  M: No, nothing yet, but we can run the interview again that we showed at 6。

  W: Fine. Now let me just run through the other stories we’ve got. Check them off as I go through them. Famine in Sudan, storms in America’s mid-west, economic problems in Japan, a big fire at the World Health Organization building in Geneva, bombs in Northern Ireland, a new computer from China that understands spoken Mandarin, and a new world record by a British athlete in Sydney。

  M: What about putting in the story on the growing number of homeless people living on the streets of Mexico City?

  W: No, I don’t think so. That’s not really hard news. Tom, let’s settle down and go through the films on video first …
