|BBC TV visit Sherwood Forest|
spent six hours filming a short feature about Glow Worms
with presenter Mike Dilger for BBC1's The ONE Show. By
the time we all left the Clipstone Old Quarter site, it
was nearly 2am, but the whole event was an extremely
enjoyable one to take part in and provided a real insight
into television production.
Filming Glow Worms, and especially to try and capture the real beauty of their light for TV, proved to be difficult, but ultimately proved to be successful. One of the cameras used was a Starlight camera, which was a remarkable piece of equipment and which was employed after dark, to record one glowing female in particular. Below are a few shots from the evening and the item should be featured in the next week or so.
