    David Harron David Harron Executive Producer

    Our decision to commission a live rock climb, on a dauntingly imposing crag, in a highly remote location with no road access, in high definition (HD), was always likely to provide its own unique set of challenges.

    However, receipt this week of the evacuation procedure and list of drugs to be available...

    Richard Klein Richard Klein Controller, BBC Four

    It's mid-August, it's raining and blowing an autumnal gale and the Edinburgh TV Festival beckons. Must be time for BBC Four's autumn/winter launch.

    This time last year I wrote about the pleasures of three artistic women's lives dramatised - Enid, Gracie and Margot. This year, it's the story of how...

  4. Digging For Britain: Tragic Roman secrets in Buckinghamshire

    I think one of the most exciting things about the Digging For Britain series is that it shows archaeology in action.

    Rather than just presenting history as a series of accepted facts we're seeing how the interpretation develops, during excavations and careful analysis in the lab.

    Excavations we...

  5. The One Show: The nerves are building after a whirlwind few weeks

    Monday 16 August 2010, 11:44

    Alex Jones Alex Jones Presenter

    I'll be honest with you, The One Show has been a whirlwind because I've only known for three weeks that I've had the job and everything has happened in the space of about four and a half weeks.

    I feel like I've been in some sort of film - I got the call and literally within hours my whole life changed...

    Ellena Wood Ellena Wood Director

    The first time I ever heard about Beckii Cruel, was when my executive producer phoned me on my day off and said the following: "I've just found out about an eccentric programme for BBC Three. It's about a girl from the Isle of Man who danced on the internet to Japanese pop music and became famous in...

  7. Mistresses was filmed inside my house

    Some months ago, a letter was posted through our door from a production company looking for a possible house location for Mistresses. I phoned the location manager and arranged for her to pop round and see if our house would be suitable.

    I didn't really have much hope as the place is pretty tatty, but...

    I guess I should consider myself very lucky. I get paid to do what most folk have to do as a hobby. But after six series of walks with Julia Bradbury, Dan Snow's Norman Walks has thrown up a fresh new set of challenges - and, it has to be said, a whole new level of walking fascination.

    Since the age...

    Croatian actor Goran Visnjic (who played Dr Luka Kovac in ER) spoke to the BBC TV blog about his role in the new drama, The Deep, which is set on a submarine.

    How would you describe Samson, your character in The Deep?

    He's a marine biologist and he's part of this team that is going to do research....
