I remember a little while back, when BBC News 24 ran a few little adverts about themselves, there was clip showing a news crew scrambling up a mountain, using donkeys to carry satellites and other equipment.
Such scenes were repeated today as Danny and I waddled our way over to the Engine Shed carrying all manner of equipment. The original plan for tonight was to use small digital camcorders to get quick clips from the results. But, sadly, we lacked the proper equipment for that (the Sony Handycam we were using wrote to .VOB and .VOB only. We don’t have the software to convert it all).
Anyway, instead, we opted to cover it using broadcast quality equipment. Which is heavy.
Still, everything is shaping up nicely.
