Andy Robertson

Head of Cameras

Andy has had a long and distinguished career in the OB business and has worked on just about every significant type of event you can imagine.

His career began in 1983 as a driver, moved into rigging in 1986 and finally attained his goal in the BBC camera section in 1998.  He is, therefore, well versed in the organisation of a successful OB as well as the camera side of things.

His list of credits is far too long to list here but highlights include working on dramas such as The Sharp End, Grange Hill, Last of the Summer Wine and East Enders. 

Sporting highlights include Wimbledon, The Ryder Cup, The Open, FA Cup finals, Football World Cups in France and Japan, Champions League finals, 6 Nations Rugby, Commonwealth Games in Delhi,  The London Olympics (Equestrian), The Grand National,  Le Mans 24 hour race,  F1 Grands Prix, The London Marathon and The Boat Race.  

Other events include numerous Royal Weddings and funerals, New Years’ Eve firework displays,  Party Conferences, Michael McIntyre’s comedy roadshow,  Ant and Dec Christmas special,  The One Show and the first ever digital terrestrially broadcast show, First Say.
