No messing about on the river!

No messing about on the river!

It’s been several years since Zerb last turned its attention to one of the oldest events in the television sporting calendar, the Oxford v Cambridge Boat Race and, as is the way with these things, the technology involved in covering this quintessentially British event has moved on yet again. The battle on the Thames between the two university teams has been fought out live in front of millions of viewers since 1938.

For the fourth year running, responsibility for televising the event for the BBC was in the hands of CTV Outside Broadcasts, supported by specialists ACS and Camera Corps, and IP experts Presteigne Broadcast Hire. GTC member Tim Deacon updates us on what this complicated OB involved this year.
