Day #1773 Title: Do Not Remove
Location: BBC MCX, Television Centre
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: A vital wire in the comms link between BBC studio N9 in London and the Washington Bureau, where the presenters were located, for the US Election programme. Overnight we watched as the American voters also said that “Do Not Remove” applied to their incumbent President.

Day #1769 Title: Round The Block
Location: Television Centre, London
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: This afternoon I went for a quick roam of the corridors at TVC during a break in rehearsals. The fifth floor is where BBC Sport used to live before they went to Salford. I loved the way the floor around the inside of the iconic donut was made up to look like an athletics track. Great fun!

Day #1590 Title: Face Down May (Mobile Phone Edition)
Location: BBC Television Centre
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: This week we are derigging the extra facilities which were put in for the Election Programme, and tidying various basement store rooms in preparation for the move to a new building in W1 later in the year. In one dark cupboard we found an old field telephone which I took a fancy to. It’s always handy to have a mobile with you to call for help if you have an accident on the stairs… This month’s shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #05 – Once A Month – May, and of course the zany Face-Down Tuesday crowd.

Day #1586 Title: Studio Guests
Location: N9, BBC Television Centre
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: I took a wander around all of our facilities this afternoon during the Vote 2010 programme transmission. Caught the studio guests in a quiet moment while Jeremey Vine was on air elsewhere, prancing about in his Virtual Reality studio down the corridor. Amongst the guests at the time with David Dimbleby were Lord Ashdown and Tessa Jowell MP.
