Isle of Man TT
Every May, over 45,000 motorcycle racing enthusiasts from around the world make the pilgrimage to the Isle of Man. They line their favourite spots on the Island’s hedgerows to secure the best vantage points to watch history being made before their eyes. There really is nothing on Earth quite like the Isle of Man TT Races. No other motorcycle race is held on such a challenging track as the Island’s 37.73 mile Mountain Course.
Demanding as the race is the related TV production. The length and size of the course with numerous filming locations, the chase helicopter operation, the bike on board camera management and the pressure of a same-day turnaround production with a live playout – if you have mastered production here, you can make it everywhere. The Island companies provide content and live feeds to major international broad-casters for sporting events from Shanghai to Miami, from Powerboat GP to Porsche Cup.
Recently Hollywood’s Pilgrim Media Group, specialized in non-scripted television production, opened an office here for the TT.
