Liverpool vs. Madrid: In the Producer's Studio
17' Okay, cut to camera three, Torres goal reaction. Ready camera two. Go camera two. Okay, zoom up on that Spanish granddad, the one who won't likely live to see another Real Madrid European Cup win. Can you get the glistening tears on his face? Good, ready camera four.
28' Go camera three, ready camera four, Gerrard celebration. Ready camera two, the busload of Madrid orphans, can you frame all the six-year olds sobbing there? Camera two, great shot there Alan, excellent stuff. Yeah, zoom in on their dribbling noses, and fade to camera four.
47' Camera one, Gerrard running by the Kop. Ready camera two, Alan, can you find the guy in the Casillas shirt who was on the defibrillator? Good, yeah, get the paramedics in the shot as well. Okay, go to the wailing woman in white renting her garments...man, the digital pick-up gives a lot of detail on the sack-cloth and ashes there...great stuff. Ready camera four.
88' Alan, ready camera two. Follow Dossena, follow him, follow him. Okay, cut to camera two. See if you can all the flames in the shot, is there anyone else in the away end self-immolating? Okay, we're going to need back up here, Alan go wide. George ready camera five on that burning Ramos effigy (how did they make it so quickly? Ingenious!). Get that salt in the wound. Good work everyone, great stuff. First round's on me mates.
