A while ago as some of you may remember there was a problem at Lytham St Annes, with cocklers, I was approached by the Sunday Mirror to take them out to the cockle beds, I quoted a Price and was told straight away that I was too expensive, as 2 members of one of the emergency services had taken the BBC out the day before at half the rate I had quoted. They apparently showed up in a car, took an inflatable out of the boot, inflated it, attached the engine and off they went don't know if lifejackets were provided or not, but pretty sure there will have been no insurance definitely no coding, probably no qualified skipper, etc etc.

Done stuff for ITV and have had to produce risk assessments NOP EAP as well as list of kit and qualifications, maybe with cut backs in all departments they just go for the cheapest option now .

Merry Christmas to you too Tim,

TBH i'm always careful to price work such that if we don't win i am comfortable that we didn't want it as we wouldn't have been able to do it justice for the lower winning price.

We've ended up doing a fair amount of media stuff over the past two years, and what's required for filming work seems to differ so much from Prod co. to Prod co. With my Proj mgt Consultants background I am pretty keen on the RA side of things.....some clients love it, others seem taken aback when you present them with the paperwork

Still haven't seen who's boat was used.....will have a nosey when i get chance.

Off to do a couple of water quality surveys now.....last day afloat tomorrow, then a day in the workshop with the Pac......looking forward to a week with the family over Christmas, so if i don't sign in beforehand, here's wishing all RIBnetters.....

Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd dda!

Used to do a lot with TV, film etc and the BBC were always the hottest on the lifejackets and minimising risks - looks like the news department can afford to lose a few!

We always quoted for doing it all properly as others on here and started losing more and more stuff - haven't done anything for quite a while now!

The Link to ITV player is: Video - ITV Player.

There were five people in the RIB - one in a blue coat seemed to be wearing white straps over the front of her coat with a black strap down the back - I think this is a LJ.

The other four-skipper, presenter & cameraman(?) had wet/dry suits on for snorkelling.

Do divers wear LJs on the way to/from a dive site?

As there were two RIBs travelling together on a fairly flat sea how high was the risk bearing in mind the name of the program.

Later on when they went coasteering they had buoyancy aids on.

Despite all the above when I plan to go snorkelling - I shall wear a LJ when in the RIB.

Very little risk.

Seeing this on television must have come as great joy to our resident Traffic Warden, Zippy.

He's got form has our Zippy, tut-tutting clipboard at the ready and if possible a camera to capture anyone daring to use a RIB without abiding to his health and safety rules.

Straight on to Ribdotnet with a full report of any misdemeanor... and if possible posting a picture for all to see.

Snap - we work many times every year with the BBC and they still ask to see the safety policy lifejacket service history etc on every booking
