BBC 5live pulled back the curtain on their F1 commentary gear this weekend, with this geeky shot of a mixing desk and a whole gaggle of cables.

The mobile studio looks eerily similar to our recording setup, including SoundBoard for the iPad (triggering samples), Audition on a MacBook Pro (via an Edirol box, for playout of longer interviews), a big old mixing desk (for... mixing things) and the essential Zoom H4 (I'm guessing for storing a safety).

You could record a whole podcast right there... if only Bernie/CVC weren't so scared of the future.
