Behind the scenes with the BBC on matchday

Behind the scenes with the BBC on matchday

The Six Nations kicks into action again this weekend as we see Italy host champions Wales, Scotland welcome Ireland, and in possibly the biggest game of the weekend, France travel to London to play England.

With these games in mind, we have an awesome behind the scenes video for you from the BBC, showing us exactly what goes into matchday preparations for a big Six Nations day of rugby.

We get taken around Twickenham before the England vs Italy match a few weeks back, and get to see what goes into bringing you the match live on tv.

From the temporary production studio, to the awesome track-cam pitchside, the BBC show us the ins and outs of what the different crews have to do before kick-off.

HD cameras, sound mixing, commentary, the lunch bus - we get to see it all in a really interesting video clip that gives us, the fan at home, a better appreciation for the combination of technology advancements and precise organisation that go into making the experience better for us all.
