in my experience (pub. tv, radio) you either a.) have a crew of at
least two, preferably three, and produce final product live to storage
media in-field, or b.) you have one to two guys in field and you put
it together in an editor back home. i prefer the latter, but most of
my colleagues prefer the former, for the reasons ron stated. i think
i just get better work done left alone in a dark, windowless room. a
second person in the field is always welcome and never affordable.

if putting it together in an editor later, i'd prefer people on
separate channels, to cover my butt relative dynamics wise. that
said, i usually (in tv interviews) put the lavalier mics through a
mixer into one channel of the recorder (a camcorder, in this case),
and the camera's mic (an omni) into the other channel, as a lousy
quality backup, in case either lav or the mixer craps out. our
equipment's old. this would be a two-person crew - one person
interviewing while the other runs camera and the mixer. of course, if
anybody sways around too much in their chair, it gets difficult to
keep them in frame.

more people in the field is always better - the chance of scaring your
subject with a big crew is far less important than having lots of
people to remember to bring batteries.
