Cameraman based in Edinburgh, employed by ITN, working for ITV's Good Morning Britain covering stories all over the UK and the world. War Zones, World Cups, Royal Tours and many other less exciting assignments, like interviewing current and ex Prime Ministers have kept me busy over the years working in Breakfast Television since GMTV came on the scene back in '93 and regional TV before that. In 2009 I began to record what it is like to work, the often strange and long hours needed to bring the hard news, human interest and fluffy fun to the UK's TV screens in the morning, mostly broadcasting live.

More Crook

Thursday 29th November
Crook County Durham

The first job of the morning was to get some shots of the Co-operative truck that was bringing a stack of cans to be sorted and distributed from the Salvation Army centre in Crook in County Durham.

It did not take too long to do a few shots of the brand new truck that had been brought in especially for this morning's event.

Then it was time to get set up for a few live shots, teases and one main broadcast. 

It was a little hectic with a large cast of helpers but there were no major problems.

We were soon saying our goodbyes and heading off in our separate directions. 

I set off north, Pete on sound along with the truck went south west and the guys involved in tomorrow's broadcasts went south in a combination of cars and trains.
