A term used in the Television business. Used on news shows and reports, 'talking heads' reffers to when the camera focuses on the head and upper shoulders of the newscaster. The resulting footage is that of a head which does not seem to be connected to a body. Thus, the term that is implied is 'talking heads'.
This definition is also where the band Talking Heads got their name from. They read it from a TV guide book.
*Roll camera 1. 'Talking heads', Go.*
