Production database built

An Access database has been quickly built to keep track of ongoing production. It can be both taken into the field on a laptop and also used to generate the Bush Telly website web pages, saving double handling.

It runs a simple cash book, keeps track of crew, supporters and sponsors etc, schedules interviews, maintains a record of photos, video clips and music.

It was designed to conform to the paper forms and spreadsheets that we actually used over the last 12 months.
