Description

As part of the activities for Wellbeing Week, Debbie Dubois, Production Executive for BBC Sport will be giving a presentation on how they manage the associated risks of hosting and filming of one of their biggest events, Sports Personality of the Year. It will look back at how the show has grown from its original roots in TVC, with a small audience, through to last years event at ExCeL Arena where there was an audience of 16,000, and some of the issues that needed consideration when you are trying to balance aspirations for high impact moments, and a large public audience.
