Well….unexpectedly I’ve begun filming for the London Olympics two weeks earlier that I thought. I was in London for a couple of days this week, picking up passes and doing some pre filming. This is inside the Olympic Village where the Athletes will be based. We were taken on a tour by Boris.
Here is the first songÂ completedÂ from the Henry Girls liveÂ show in DerryÂ which Mark McCauley and I filmed in February. I’ve been editing this on an Avid Media Composer system using the Multi- Camera function.Â Â

Working in in the town of Lalibela in Northern Ethiopia where we were based for two days. We chose this location to shoot what will eventually become the opening to the programme. It was quite early in the morning and very warm. Two days previous to this I was hardly able stand up as a result of a very bad stomach bug and an 8 hour journey by road in the back of a Land Cruiser in blistering heat. Thanks to everyone who looked after me & nursed me back to health and we still managed to film every day.
