Day #260

Day #259Title: The View From The Balcony
Location: BBC Scotland, Pacific Quay, Glasgow
Camera: GoPro Hero 3+ Black
Extras: GoPro Pole / GoPro App
Notes: I took a little break from my duties to wander round and make a few pictures during rehearsals. This is a bird’s eye view from the 5th floor. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #63 – A Feat Of Engineering.

Day #118

Day #118Title: Shhhh! The Cameras Are Sleeping…
Location: BBC Elstree
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-55mm EF f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Extras: Gorillapod / Wireless Remote
Notes: The set is being put in the studio over the next few days. Meanwhile, the cameras are lurking in a corner having a quick snooze before their hard work begins. Much like parrots, if you put a cloth over them, they settle down and go quietly to sleep rather than kicking up a fuss. Little known TV fact, honest!

Day #106

Day #106Title: In A League Of My Own
Location: BBC Elstree, Borehamwood
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-55mm EF f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Extras: Gorillapod / CamRanger
Notes: We have been back in Studio D preparing our equipment and testing it before we need it for the show next month. I found this trophy in a pile of discarded props lurking in a corner. It’s from Sky’s sporting game show A League Of Their Own, hosted by James Corden, which was made at Elstree. The winners obviously weren’t keen on taking it home – it’s pretty heavy!

Day #101

Day #101Title: Parallel Universe
Location: BBC Elstree, Borehamwood
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-55mm EF f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Extras: Mini Tripod / Wireless Remote
Notes: We’ve been back at BBC Elstree today, having various meetings and doing more planning work. The office where we’re currently based also doubles as the interior corridor set for Hobly City which is filmed at Elstree, so all the stairwells have signs for the hospital rather than helpful locators for lost visitors! Now am I supposed to be in Neurology or ITU?

Day #98

Day #98Title: Hello Studio D
Location: BBC Elstree, Borehamwood
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-55mm EF f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Extras: Mini Tripod / Wireless Remote
Notes: Today we visited the studio we’re going to be using for the Election Programmes for the first time. Since they are now refurbishing Television Centre and it’s closed for a few years, we’re instead at BBC Elstree in Borehamwood, the long-time home of East Enders and Holby City.
