AC­TION RE­PLAY NA­TIONAL SCI­ENCE AND ME­DIA MU­SEUM, BRAD­FORD UN­TIL 30 SEPT 2018

Focus-Science and Technology - - OUT THERE -

With the video-as­sis­tant ref­eree in­cit­ing de­bates this sum­mer, and ten­nis slo-mo all over the news, the Na­tional Sci­ence and Me­dia Mu­seum is go­ing be­hind the scenes with Ac­tion Re­play, an ex­hi­bi­tion about game- chang­ing tech in sports broad­cast­ing.

It high­lights break­throughs, like the role of Wim­ble­don and snooker in in­tro­duc­ing colour TV in the 1960s, right through to more re­cent freeze frames, ac­tion re­plays and ‘ref cams’.

It even of­fers you the chance to di­rect sports re­plays in slow mo­tion, and find out whether you can match a com­men­ta­tor’s speed of thought. The ex­hi­bi­tion also takes a look at some more unusual icons from the broad­cast­ing world, in­clud­ing Paul the psychic octopus, the ‘cheat sheets’ used by BBC Ra­dio New­cas­tle’s Sun­der­land foot­ball com­men­ta­tor Nick Barnes, and the Te­lestra­tor light pen used to draw on-screen graph­ics.
