Well, some of the scaffolding rig is suspended from the scenery hoist system and some is suspended from the actual lighting hoists. You can see pictures of both in use, including some lights actually on the lighting hoists.

How is that shot done is it a cameraman on a roof or something looks really dangerous

From the gantries that surround the studio. Why would there be a roof involved?

There may also be an issue about insurance - as to use lighting hoists you have to test them (yearly or every two years?) and this involves taking them to the floor.


6 monthly and 12 monthly for the different components. Legal requirement under the LOLER / PUWAR parts of H&S legislation, not just for insurance.

Not sure if just not using them would be sufficient to avoid the need for testing unless you also found some manner of permanently securing all the components such that they no longer fall under the definitions of inspectable equipment.


There was a solution like that required for TC7 where lighting hoists above the Barco walls had to be taken out of service as they couldn't be tested.

Some older hoists have physical stops which can be installed, and some scenery hoists have a form of housing which can be placed over them to prevent movement. From my understanding, whilst these make inspection under LOLER/PUWAR unnecessary, many liability insurance policies require equipment to be tested by a competent person every 6 months.

And that’s ignoring the fact that hoists need regular maintenance, particularly if in warranty (although not a problem with the ancient ones at TVC)!

Yes, GMB got a 27% share according to Piers Morgan.

No, it is not number one in the ratings. Breakfast still ahead.

I feel like this needs one of those.

Please stop with the repetitive "now number 1 breakfast show" every time Piers tweets the audience share. It's great that there's two strong breakfast shows, ITV could well have given up a few years back, but if Breakfast is getting a higher share with more viewers, it's clearly still number one.
