Email i recived tonight

Dear Mr Gamble

I am sure you will be delighted to hear that UTV has no plans whatsoever to drop RPM from its schedule. I can only presume you picked up that inaccurate information from an article that appeared in the Sunday World.

We were contacted by the journalist in question last week and told him RPM was not being axed but he chose to ignore this fact and deliberately misled Sunday World readers.

We will be contacting the Sunday World to raise our objections to this article.

Yours sincerely

What about the great circuit of ireland programmes in 1985 & 1986 - half an hour each night for five nights.....that was some viewing, but as Plum said to me, it was seriously hard work to produce in such a short space of time

For sure. Even though the TV helicopter brought the footage daily to Belfast or Dublin where it was edited, and was probably the only helicopter floating in the air, there are many more now. Theres also modern satellite systems which can beam signals from pretty much anywhere to anywhere! All could be done theoretically in a big truck like you see on WRC articles and documentaries.

With Satelitte you can uplink from almost anywhere, for example the timing at RI was the same gear used in the WRC.. and no matter where you are you are under the sky so able to point one at the other:)

i think in the wrc they upload it staight away live...
they have the same system as the timekeepers have and upload all there video straight away. (used for the wrc.com + where you can watch live video)
its also easyer so there dont have to go to the service park.
also was talking to a guy at rally ireland (wrc camera man) the stand (tripod) they put them on cost more than the 3 camera i have and a laptop all put together... i dident even ask how much the camera was.
