Joe, cameraman Marty and producer Jack travelled over a thousand miles filming for Newsround’s ‘Powering Britain’ series. All this week Joe will be looking at the future of energy production in the country. Check out these behind the scenes pics!
Joe and cameraman Marty make best use of the sunset to grab some shots of the Didcot Power Station's famous towers in Oxfordshire.
This mountain of mucky coal powers thousands of homes. But new rules to protect the environment mean it’s closing down soon after more than 40 years.
Joe gets very excited about Marty’s steadicam! He uses the special camera to film really smoothly and you can see the results in Joe's report from ‘Britain’s greenest home’ near Birmingham.
School kids invade our filming! These pupils dropped by on a school trip to the ‘eco home’ and ended up being our on-site experts! Also in the pic is their teacher and the owner of the home.
Professor Rod Scott amazes Joe with his algae farm in Gloucestershire. He’s growing the plants in these tubes which he then turns into fuel.
Producer Jack talks Joe and the professor through the plan for filming: "Can we have lots of cool green algae tubes please?"
Joe visits the world's largest wind turbine farm off the coast of Kent. Here he is talking to expert Jo talk about the project, while our other cameraman Ian gets some shots!
And finally, after days of pestering Marty the cameraman lets Joe have a go on his cool camera contraption. Joe thinks he looks like a mixture between a robot and a camera – maybe he should be called Robocam Man!?
