5 Things That Surprised Me About Television…

Posted on August 11, 2011


1 Everybody wears an absolute tonne of make up

2 What you see on screen, “the set”, might only take up a
quarter of the actual studio space

3 Most of the cameras operate remotely and have no camera
person standing at them

4 Presenters’ earpieces have to be specially moulded with a
cast taken of their ear. Everyone has different shaped ears and only by getting
them specially made can you stop them falling out.

5 Absolutely every piece of music you hear on a television programme has to be meticulously logged and if its a well known, commercially available song, it has to be paid for and this can be very expensive.
