The Christian O'Connell breakfast Show

Absolute Radio - live from St Pancras and Stratford

Celebrating 3 years to the London Olympics and the launch that day of the high-speed Javelin trains servicing Stratford, Absolute Radio presented their breakfast show live from St Pancras railway station with co-hosts at the Olympic Stadium site.

We used high-power portable radio links so that show host Christian O'Connell could chat with Olympic medalists, politicians and the general public as he roamed the length and breadth of the station, from platform edge to shopping centre and champagne bar.

A BGAN satellite link, with backup feed via 3G, delivered our live audio to the Absolute studios in Golden Square, whilst at the Olympic site in Stratford a second Wired Broadcast team contributed news, weather and travel reports via ISDN.
