C4 choose Rear Window for Graham Norton

Rear Window Television, in partnership with Downlink Communications, have been providing all technical facilities to So Television for the Outside Broadcasts on Channel 4’s ‘V Graham Norton’.
Items on the show have included ice-skating at Marble Arch, naked skiing in Milton Keynes, a live broadcast from a caravan in Coventry and meeting Tom Hanks, Leonardo Di Caprio and Stephen Spielberg in Leicester Square.
Responsible for all the location sound and the video from the camera all the way back to The London Studios on South Bank, as well as communications between Graham Norton, the crew on location and the studio team, RWTV and Downlink have been working with Norton since the beginning of the last series.
RWTV’s Nathan Spencer said: "Since I was involved in the now legendary live setup for Dustin Hoffman in the taxi cab, we are continually stretching the normal limits of live OB’s and allowing the production team to feature places which might normally have been out of reach, especially when you consider we have just hours to prepare these complex items."
