At first I actually thought the behind-the-scenes video from Capoeira was just a bunch of stills someone had stuck together rather than an actual video, but then it has audio to go with it.

It's interesting to see how much more love and respect everyone seems to have for the Rhythm and Dance idents now than at the time. Maybe idents are just like fine wine, so perhaps in 10 years time we'll all be in love with 'swimmers standing gormlessly in the sea' just as much!

I imagine the risk of theft may be low. They'd be easily detectable on the black market and useless without the rest of the camera chain.

There have been cases in the past here in the US of people who stole relatively new cameras selling them on eBay or Craigslist and have been caught. Although for some reason there's been several camera thefts and robbings of crews in the San Francisco Bay Area and I believe the suspects haven't been caught.

As an aside with the fact that cameras are light weight and easily dockable to box lenses - could productions leave the wiring, dock and lens in place and secure the camera overnight?

I had to reinstall the NOW TV Player (from Cisco), but otherwise works fine using Win 7.


Even though it most probably likely hasn't installed to the standard location for software installations.

Where did it install to BTW ... ?
"The Not-So-Late-Show with Greg Mitchell" on Roch Valley Radio is on temporary hiatus due to admin delays with the local NHS Trust. Long story!

Shaun Ley now on Hardtalk - recorded I would think, obviously. Wish I had kept a record of which ties presenters have worn recently to try to work out when. Wonder whether this was the reason Jane Hill presented Dateline over the weekend, which aired during Shaun Ley's shift, rather than Shaun.

Hardtalk as a programme has never been live and Shaun Ley has been a presenter for a number of years, normally presenting issues recorded over the summer or at weekends. Hardtalk requires the presenter to research (read about the work/life of) the interviewee and is not something that could be recorded in a 30 minute break mid shift, so Jane presenting this weeks dateline is almost certainly irrelevant (especially as she has presented a number of recent editions of dateline).

My memories of 90s post-pub TV are particularly hazy (since I mainly viewed them post-pub) but Hotel Babylon just seemed like an overcooked clone of The Word. The racism row broke out just before the show actually made it to air, according to this: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/the-tv-parts-that-black-men-cant-reach-1322406.html The show was paid for by Heineken so it may have been one last roll of the dice.
