YDG looks after the safety of the production team and their equipment when recording.
We ensure the locations are safe for both crew, presenters and equipment. YDG can be involved in the planning including pre-site visits, access arrangements and location choice.
Recently we took Ade Edmondson caving as part of the new The Dales series on ITV Mondays at 8.00 pm. This included site visits, location access as well as getting the crew and equipment down safely and dry.
We assisted in the filming of a cave rescue scenario for an episode of The Royal. This included the location management and safety for 3 days filming and even a speaking cameo appearance for Dave.
Dave took Lesley Garrett caving as part of the Britain’s Favourite View series. YDG, as members of CRO, helped the planning and filming of a Countrywise production for celebrating the 75th anniversary of CRO in 2010 with Paul Heiney as the presenter. Previously Dave had filmed with Countryfile’s Adam Henson on the side of Ingleborough and John Craven above Horton-in-Ribblesdale.
We were part of a team that took the camera and sound crew down Alum Pot for a recording for the Paul O’Grady Show.
