By the way I've set up a shortcut to this discussion which is

If you start getting into lots of details and it needs its own forum just let me know.

The best pedals for heels, haha I like your thinking.

But you're right there are all kinds of cyclists and all kinds of bikes and equipment. If the show demonstrates something that most people wouldn't be aware of like a cargo trike, it doesn't have to get into technical details, just enough to say a bit about it and for people to go "oooh that's cool"

And yeah there's lots of stuff going on in Bristol that could be featured, also might be an idea to do a sort of "day in the life" of people who cycle for their job or do something that people wouldn't have thought of related to cycling.

It is a big project, but its good to start talking about it, hopefully people will be interested and get involved. I've posted some messages on permaculture groups and justfortheloveofit asking people to get involved in this discussion, so hopefully we'll get some interest

Personally I've got too many other projects on the go to get involved in this but I'd really like to see it happen and will promote the idea as much as I can. Wouldn't it be great if cyclists of Bristol came up with a show that was much better than what the big boys can manage?

My friend Sy teaches film and drama at Bristol Uni and suggested that it might be a project either he or a group of his students might be able to get involved with when it comes to filming, editing that kind of thing. I'll get him to join in the discussion.

There was a discussion about cycling shows recently on facebook after the first edition of BeSpoke on Radio 5Live, and the conclusion was that we should make a TV show or web series about cycling in Bristol. Here's an extract of the discussion.

Rob Bushill: i don't suppose anyone knows how to make a 1/2 hour TV program do they? I reckon that between us we could fill 30 minutes...that's about 18 minutes after titles and break for adverts :-)

Robin Stent: maybe you should make a FB group for it and brainstorm some ideas, you could make it a youtube series

Rob Bushill: i should have remembered that from my corporate days...don't suggest anything, you'll get to carry it forward...what you suggest is not a bad idea thought, shame i'm not more in town..a powerful tool though...

Robin Stent: I reckon its worth throwing some ideas around about it, you never know you might end up with a whole team of volunteers and not actually have to do anything, it wouldn't surprise me its a good idea and I think something that's really missing from the TV schedules

Rob Bushill: any BBC boffins about that might give a few pointers?? (or independants..)

Martin Tweddell: The programme does have a short section about everyday cycling called "OK Commuter" (a play on words of Radiohead's famous song). And to confess to being a BBC boffin - though not at the heart of decision making. It would be great to have something like ITV4's Cycle Show made in Bristol - perhaps hosted by the Roll for the Soul bike cafe when they set up? Who'd like to get together to come up with a format?

Rob Wall
: Consider it hosted! I'd been thinking that, but hadn't volunteered as we've got a billion other things to do to get open over the next few months. But count us in as a location if other people can bring the content!
