Blue Peter

Blue Peter, the world’s longest running children’s TV show, joined Speed of Light Salford with presenters Helen Skelton and Barney Harwood looking at both the running and technology involved in the project. Helen took part as a runner, wearing an LED light suit and joining the choreography around The Quays, while Barney got involved in the technical side, assisting with lighting cues. The Speed of Light feature was aired in April 2013, and can be viewed on the Blue Peter website.
