BBC: STAR GAZING LIVE

We are proud that the BBC chose The Independent Traveller's Eclipse Viewing Community Event, to be the main base for the filming of their BBC Star Gazing Live Show.

From 9am the BBC Stargazing Live team started their live broadcast from our site – The Independent Traveller's team had been working with the BBC for months behind the scenes. The broadcast gave the place  a good buzz and fantastic atmosphere, with the local children providing the excited crowd backdrop and some of our group being interviewed for the show.  

The live show that features Chris Hollins presenting from our event back to the studio with Brian Cox and Dara O Briain is the BBC Star Gazing Live Series 5, Episode 5: Eclipse Live. 


AL JAZEERA

Al Jazeera spent a morning travelling and filming on one of our full day excursions around the Faroe islands as part of our Faroe Islands Total Solar Eclipse Tour 2015.

Al Jazeera's interview features willing participants from our tour group as well as Kate Russo talking about what the TSE experience is like for them. It was filmed the day before the eclipse (19th March 2015) near Gjogv which is a tiny village to the North of Eysturoy. 

We would like to say a huge thank you to all of our tour group, as everyone was a great support and full of high spirits. Thank you to our  tour participants who featured in this footage and to those who were interviewed and unfortunately not shown. The participants who were involved were from Japan, the UK, Canada and the US. A great experience!
