The problem is in part that....
This was claimed to be a clip due to be shown on TV. Therefore it would be perfectly acceptable and for that matter, common practice to have edited
the audio track.
I noted that, the second link to the supposedly, original footage, that the sound is, indeed very different. it is horribly overloaded, as one would
expect from a camcorders mics.
Anyway what would happen in the editing suite would be this...
They would have to, if it is to be broadcast in stereo, make the sound of the jets commensurate with their movement for showing. the dialogue has
been rendered to what is called dual mono, this o done, more often than not, to tidy it up and make it far stable and audible on your typical tv
It would seem, what they have done is, produced a final audio file where the dual mono of the speech and the stereo of the jets and helicopter have
been combined bounced to one track which is, impart stereo, in other parts dual mono..
The waters are futher muddied by what i pointed out before. Some camcorders sold as stereo, when using the inbuilt flush mounted mics are,
effectively dual mono. That is, the mics themselves, are so poor there is virtually no stereo separation at all. The only time the exhibit any real
*stereo* is when something extremely loud appears from the far left or right of the sound stage..
