Default Tim goes Underground

I see Tim is working on a new series to be shown later in the year on
Yesterday. From a tweet this morning of his:

One of the few +ves of commuting on the tube (and filming a TV show called
#SecretsOfTheLondonUnderground) during a lockdown is that recently I’ve
been walking around London’s underground network a lot, and at times,
almost *entirely* by myself.

That led me to an announcement from two weeks ago:

filming a TV show called
#SecretsOfTheLondonUnderground during a lockdown


How is that an essential service?

It's work, which is allowed. In fact, reporters have been on duty
throughout the pandemic.

Reporting is an essential service. Making documentaries about the
secrets of The Underground isn't.

Lots of radio, TV amd film production has continued through Lockdown.

Must admit that it seems hard to justify yet another film about the
London Underground during Lockdown.

Who said it was? The rule is work from home if you can. Otherwise you should go
to work and observe precautions. You can even hold large, indoor, meetings for
work purposes.

It might be something that will be interesting to watch on TV though!
(For once)

.... even if the 'secrets' aren't actually a secret to anyone here.

There is no requirement that a job of work should be essential before it is
undertaken

The law accepts that commercial life must go on

So it is simply subjected to social distancing rules

and if you can make a socially distance documentary, you are 100% free to do
so. (and the presenter can even have their hair professionally cut before
doing so)

It's work which he can't do from home. I don't think there's been a point
at which non-essential *work* was forbidden (otherwise my friends who run a
mail-order wool company would have had to close, for example). Or do you
think all production of new TV programmes should have ceased for a year?

Various very interesting YouTubers have continued making videos within the
rules too (eg Tom Scott and The Tim Traveller) - I'm guessing that they
make all/a considerable amount of their income from their YouTube videos,
therefore it counts as work, it can't be done from home, therefore it's
permitted. Geoff Marshall's 399 (?) bus video recently discussed here falls
into the same category - was that essential?
