You’ll also find a page about this in the web area of this site, which will tell you more about the work Viv has done on that side of things since 2001.

But her involvement with this prestigious singing competition goes back a lot further; in fact she has worked on every competition from its inception in 1983, right up to 2007.

From her earliest days as a TV Production Assistant, Viv has called shots for the outside broadcasts, prepared material for scripting, logged videotape and attended single camera shoots. Later, as Unit Manager, she arranged facilities and compiled budgets, and when the coverage grew larger and more complex in the 1990s, her work as Production Executive put her at the centre of the hub. Everything from the daily crewing schedule, to the arranging of interpreters for the edited interviews, to the rushing of tapes across town for transmission, and much more, crossed her desk, at which she toiled from early morning to late at night.
