Petrolheads...almost live!

Here's a photo taken about an hour ago of Neil Morrissey demonstrating the Segway to Richard Hammond and Chris Barrie.

The first show airs tomorrow night on BBC2 at 10:10pm....a must see!

New Qi Blog

I've decided to start up a new blog for Qi and will post future pictures here, to save filling up this blog.

Qi - The set construction

These pictures show the construction phase of the set build.

If I can dig them out, I'll try to post some of my construction drawings and designs.

Q.i - the inspirations

Here are a series of pictures that were part of the inspiration for my set design.

These were ultimately used on the 'rings' behind Stephen.

In no particular order of importance: The Rosetta Stone, The Dead Sea Scrolls, Egyptian Hieroglyphics and The Golden Section, which was used elsewhere on the set.

Other images not shown are Newtonian scientific formulae and an Astrology Chart.

You might find that Quite Interesting.

Petrolheads on TV

Show 1 of Petrolheads airs on Sunday night BBC 2 at 10:10pm.

Don't miss it!

Mock The Week Show 4

Yesterday was the fourth recording in the current series at TV Centre.

Guests included Hugh Dennis, Sandi Toksvig, John Oliver, Andy Parsons, Frankie Boyle and David Mitchell.

Great show.

Over heard an all time great comment you could only ever hear in my industry:

Director over talkback to the Floor Manager as it was getting late:
" No! Tell him (Hugh Dennis) not to walk like a Dinosaur!"

Every week Hugh does a Velociraptor walk for the audience.

The first photo shows Dara rehearsing, whilst the other shows a never before seen view of Dara's desk from his perspective.

Yes, it's pretty basic...all the money goes on the front!

Green Wing 2 - Day 20 of the studio build

The main corridor looking back towards the General Medical Reception and Sue White's corridor

Green Wing 2 - Day 1 of the studio build

The first bit of flattage gets assembled...this was a piece of Statham's corridor.

Green Wing Series 2

Keep an eye out on Channel 4 for updates about the new series of Green Wing.
This series will be even better than the last, and you won't be disappointed.
Please don't ask me about specific story lines of any yet to be broadcast episodes, because that would just spoil the surprises,and there's a number.
You'll just have to watch to find out.
I'd be happy to answer anything non-specific to the plot though.
Here's a nice little picture of Martin Dear in Sue White's office set.
