What does a large throne, a corgi, a tent and the Beckhams have in common
N/A I've been involved in some pretty bizarre jobs and shoots before. I've ended up the Monument Tower in London with a skateboard deck on my back. I've been inches (inches!!) away from rapper Example. And I've seen someone fire a monkey at another exhibitor at BVE. (Not a real monkey, just in case you were about to call the RSPCA).

X 10 or X 3? - That is the question
N/A For many years now, the sports programme producer has benefited from a triple speed (75fps) super motion replay facility.

Kieron Seth# The 8,000 mile journey of the Olympics torch has been the surprise hit of the games so far. Each step and every handover is filmed and beamed live to connected viewers over the Internet. Easy enough for an organisation as large and technically astute as the BBC, with its wealth of resources, but in this age of new technology, surprisingly there's no costly satellite van following the action throughout its course. The BBC has turned to a new solution: bonded cellular transmission, using publicly available mobile phone networks.
