This video demonstrates how the line-up for studio and outside broadcast cameras worked. It was produced as part of Royal Holloway, University of London’s, ADAPT project, using the restored outside broadcast truck CMCR9, Pebble Mill’s original CM1. The ADAPT project recreates how now defunct television production processes worked, and is run by Professor John Ellis. The video is protected under a creative commons licence.
The following comments were left on the Pebble Mill Facebook page:
John Greening: ‘Still have a line up before every studio day on EastEnders’
Carolyn Davies: ‘Still done in many studios…certainly not a ‘was’ process!’
