How long do they spend recording the links for the show? Do you spend all day there?
You need on site by about 1:30pm, 2pm absolute latest. The actual recording started about 3pm and was finished just before 6pm. As well as recording the links, news, interview etc you also get to see all of that week's films. In our instance, there weren't that many re-takes or pick-ups, but the studio is surprisingly small so all the equipment has to moved between segments. You are told you can be there until as late as 7:30pm sometimes.
