The chase is a relatively new addition to ITV but incredibly popular, hosted by actor Bradley Walsh (Law & Order: UK). It consists of a team of four ordinary people; against one despicably mean quiz master i.e. “The Chaser”. The contestant generally gets a head start, earned from a quick fire round. Then the chase is on! It stands out from the rest of the televised game shows due to it’s fast paced nature which will ensure you remain on the edge of your seat throughout, rooting for the contestants or even the celebrities, who are regularly featured on the show to raise money for charity.
It has been reported that the Chase is ITV’s most popular daytime TV show with a peak audience of 5.1 million, It also won the “best day-time TV show” prize at the broadcast awards in 2013. Incredible growth from a show into it’s 7th series and 4th year of production.
Our role on ITV's The Chase consisted of supplying and maintaining Avid Nitris DX (PC) non linear editor, EVS Xhub(2) Network Hub equipment and Sony HDW-M20000 HDCAM VTR. We were also on-call 24/7 in the case of required assistance. Our brilliant team were available to set-up the equipment and provide assistance in mentoring ITV production crew on how to utilise such equipment. Then we left it in the hands of ITV, of course we were on the other end of the phone.Kit List:
