The evolving art of sports television
N/A Given the choice of watching a major live event on site or via television, most people would opt for the real thing. Sure, you have to get to the venue, perhaps queue to buy a ticket, find your seat or maybe stand for hours. If it is a football match, the audience in front will probably stand up for a better view of each goal, completely blocking your view. But you are there and you feel part of it.

Around the globe with Q-Ball
N/A The bicentenary of the birth of Charles Darwin was celebrated during 2009 by a variety of TV programmes studying the background to his 1859 book 'On the Origin of Species'. One of the most ambitious tributes was a 35-part series planned and produced by Dutch broadcaster VPRO. Rather than hire a studio, they commissioned the three-masted clipper Stad Amsterdam which looks every inch the part with its 256 foot long deck, 34 foot beam, 14 cabins and 2,200 square metres of sail. Unlike the original Beagle, it also has an engine capable of delivering a respectable amount of electrical power.
