UK - The teatime quiz show Eggheads its currently filming a new series.

The show, hosted by Jeremy Vine, sees two teams going head-to-head through five rounds of gruelling questions and intense brain teasers. The Eggheads teams consist of highly regarded quiz and game show champions (rotating each episode), against a series of teams of five 'challengers' who in each episode attempt to beat the Eggheads.

Lighting designer Martin Kempton continues to originate the show, supported by Richard Martin Lighting (RML), which now features our latest purchase the VL4000 Spot.

”The VL4000 Spot includes all the tools needed to create dynamic and useful lighting on any stage. Every aspect of the luminaire has been designed with performance in mind. The 1200W VL4000Spot boasts 33,000 lumens and features a quiet studio mode outputting 25,000 lumens. High resolution optics ensure remarkable centre-to-edge focusing and an unprecedented contrast ratio. A 5:1 zoom covers an amazing 9 to 47 degrees without sacrificing output or clarity.”

To go with the rest of the set Martin chose Mac Auras, Chroma Banks and Mac 250s

The show for 12 Yard Productions is filmed at the Pacific Quays, Glasgow so Tony Kennedy and his team at Tecknique Systems are on hand to make sure that everything runs smoothly and all of the team are happy.
