Day one of the Reuters live breakfast show at Davos

There’s no better way to start Davos than to see a string of top delegates breeze into your studios. On time. Happy to brave the cold in the early hours. Full of interesting comments and insight.

For the second year running, Reuters News is producing a live breakfast show for the World Economic Forum – Davos Today.

It has been months in the making. From designing a set that fits into the town library, to booking satellite paths, to contacting dozens of delegates to invite them on the programme. At 4 o’clock this morning, the adrenaline was pumping. It was time to pull the whole thing off.

All waiting for Putin

Near the VIP entrance of the congress hall here in the World Economic Forum in Davos, scores of delegates, press, aids, security guards are all waiting for the imminent arrival of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

It’s extremely cramped here with a constant stream of people squeezing past those who are standing here to catch a glimpse of Putin.

Former UN secretary Kofi Anan was nearly hit by a TV camera while financier George Soros asked the press “Who’s coming?” When someone said it was Putin, his aide said: “Say hello to him!”
