Ask Look North was a collaboration with BBC Look North (Yorkshire) in which YSTV, LSTV and Forge TV contributed live to a BBC Facebook livestream.



The set was lit up using photon-beards, with two rows of seating in YourSpace. From left to right, there was a wireless camera, the new C100 on the recently recovered jib, a wide shot and a camera for close-ups. Sound came from the lavalier on Joel, either handheld mic and an off-screen mic for atmosphere. The make-shift control room was in the glass meeting room, next to the Sabbs office.

Extended Show

Due to our total airtime on the Ask Look North livestream being of the order of a few minutes, it was decided we should do our own impromptu debate streamed to Facebook while we had the setup and political types, and so was born the YSTV Pop-Up Debate.

The tech team made up of Sam Willcocks and Tom Lee managed to setup the live stream for Facebook in a very short space of time, and once Sam Willcocks had made a quick stream holding card we went live for a 20-minute show. Joel Mitchell moderated a healthy and largely polite discussion, and we wrapped feeling like the effort setting up had been more worthwhile.


Behind The Streams came from this.
