Journalism William Goldman calls this kind of thing a Hollywood moment:
"Having filmed a good number of Polish shops and recruitment agencies, we finally hit the jackpot. My producer, Steven Duke, spots a cluster of 'For Sale' and 'To Let' signs bunched together at the side of the road. This is already good news - you'd be amazed how difficult it is to find lots of property signs in one place for illustrating housing market stories. Then a miracle happens. A man with a truck-full of signs pulls up and lets us film him actually putting up another 'For Sale' sign. In TV economics coverage this is about as close to a Bafta-winning action sequence as you're likely to get."
