Over 25 cameras and solid-state recorders from Camera Corps captured the excitement of 2014 Isle of Man Tourist Trophy motorcycle races during the two-week event from Saturday May 24 to Friday June 6. Working in close partnership with North One Television for ITV 4, Camera Corps provided a wide range of specialised equipment including forward and rear-facing motorcycle-mounted cameras, approach and recede kerb-cams and various high-level wide-angle cameras around the course. Multiple HD on-board mini cams also provided driver's-eye views of Mark Higgins' record-breaking lap of the course in a Subaru WRX STi.

Roadside cameras were positioned each morning within range of a mobile phone link to allow text-based switch-on and switch-off. This was a useful safeguard given the length of the course and the long duration of the event.  Factors such as bad weather, accidents or animals straying onto the track can all affect the day’s schedule. 

As the course is closed to all non-race traffic for most of each day, a car was sent round behind each race to bring all the recorded files back to the onsite production hub.  There they were ingested to main edit control room so the footage could be edited by the North One Television team.  A 60 minute domestic programme was created each day for ITV and another for international channels. These were then distributed via a digital satellite uplink The ITV4 broadcast was at 9 pm on each night of the TT series, also available on ITV Player.
