Outside broadcast company Arena Television is providing facilities for the BBC Natural History Unit’s production of Springwatch which continues this week. 

Four trucks are being used for the annual wildlife show, housing six edit suites, monitoring and a production gallery.

Springwatch was previously made using de-rig facilities. The switch to a truck-based operation coincides with the upgrade to HD.

Six main cameras from Arena and 25 HD mini-wildlife cameras from the BBC’s NHU are being used to produce the show which goes on out on BBC2 and via the red button

Five wildlife streams are also being made available on the Internet and, for the first time, via mobile phones.

Springwatch airs from 31 May to 17 June 2010.
