Saw this yesterday and was going to post but forgot about it. does anyone know if this was actually broadcast live or (as is often the case in television) filmed at an earlier date and shown as if live?

surely someone on here would have seen them on park? or at least been aware of their presence... (BBC vans etc.)

I highly doubt it was filmed live.  They'd have have crowd control in some way... interesting to think as to how it would've been done!

Throughout the bit at the end (when they were talking to the kids) i didn't see a single train on rita's break run... does this mean they closed off dark forest completely for filming purposes, or that rita was down for some other reason? (more likely :P)

They were filming on Wednesday. Was quite funny to watch filing on oblivion...the mist was working overtime on Wednesday and the camera kept missing the vital shot. Poor presenter kept being sent round and round. Not sure if she was a fan
