I suspect most viewers underestimate the amount of work required to check, edit, index, upload and archive even a well-recorded diavlog for web publication. It's not hard, but it's timeconsuming for the simple reason that it takes time to view any video. And BHTV can't afford to pay for the required the man-hours.
