World Feed Running Order AF Golden League Berlin

Dear Broadcaster

The forrecast for the AF Golden League in Berlin looks fine and several of the world top athletes are preparing for the last Golden League season.

The World Feed will start at CET 15:00 sharp. The signal will be avilable from CET 14:00 and feed you opening, closing titles, city footage from Berlin and unilateral interviews during the first 30 min. From CET 14:30 the signal from the Host Broadcaster (HB) will be followed. A count down clock will be used the last 45 sec before start of transmission.

The HB will follow all track disciplines from start to end, from presentations to resultas. In general three slomotions sequences will be used for the track disciplines.

All field disciplines that are part of the Golden League, High Jump W, Javelin M, Pole Vault W will be followed live or recorded during transmission. Other field disciplines as Discus M, Shot Put W and Long Jump M will be replayed in short summaries in the end of the transmission and if the transmission time allows.

For those who are using CIS over the Internet will have access to the Master Talk back coming from the HB. This is a test to see if the service can be developed for the future.

In the end of transmission (please see the TV handbook page 7, item 3) there will be a short - 10 sec - promotion for the upcoming Golden League meeting in Oslo July 3.
