BDO World Trophy of Darts
UKTV’s Dave extended its live sports coverage this weekend, as the BDO World Trophy of Darts was aired for a marathon 34-hours over the Bank Holiday weekend. Televideo’s HD7 was the hub of the 9-camera outside broadcast for client Input Media.
The event came from the ‘spiritual home’ of darts, the Lakeside Country Club in Surrey, and was fronted by Nat Coombs and Charlie Webster. The huge £150,000 prize money always makes this a fierce tournament, and this year was no different, with Darryl Fitton pulling away in a close men’s final, and Lisa Ashton retaining the trophy in the women’s tournament.
