Sports specialists Greenlight Television opened its doors for a behind-the-scenes tour at the end of October.
Hosted by RTS Isle of Man, the tour of Greenlight’s facilities offered an insight into how the indie produces highlights of the Isle of Man TT for ITV4 from its production base in Tromode on the Isle of Man.
The Isle of Man TT, arguably, the world’s most famous motorcycle road race, is run on closed public roads over a 37.73-mile course.
Greenlight produces same-day, hour-long highlight programmes for ITV4 during the fortnight of racing on the Isle of Man in early summer.
While the riders are racing around the course at death-defying speeds of up to 200mph, Greenlight is recovering pictures from a dozen cameras, plus kerbcams, more than 30 on-board cameras and a helicopter.
Guests on the tour were taken around the production offices, with Greenlight staff on-hand to answer questions.
