Behind the Scenes…

Wednesday 21st October comments: Its all go on the Isle of May NNR! Yesterday we brought you the exciting news that the island will be beamed to the homes of millions as this year’s BBC Autumnwatch will be with us (and the mighty Tentsmuir NNR) for the Grey Seal pupping season (its going to be exciting).

However before the live broadcast on Tuesday there is a lot of hard work going on behind the scenes (it takes a lot of time, kit and patience to bring you the brilliant stories). In recent days remote cameras are being fitted ahead of the arrival of the pupping seals which will reduce any disturbance to the area, so the cameras will be able to pick up the trials and tribulations of the colony from day one. The visitor centre has been transformed into a mini-production and editing suite with cables, wires, computers and monitors all set up ready for kick-off. It’s all hard work but hopefully it will pay off and the BBC team will be ready to go for next Tuesday evening. Autumnwatch bringing you the Isle of May to your very own front room, who would have thought?

As always we’ll also be keeping you posted with all the news and views from the island so stay tuned and expect lots of blog updates as things progress. The fun is just about to start…
