Sharon scheduled for prime-time TV and a bit of ‘Radar Love’

IMAG0381

Dallas Campbell and the BBC team at ‘Britain Beneath Your Feet’ have let us know the airdate for the program in which Sharon extols the virtues of TreeRadar, shot at Burghley House, the annual home for the Burghley International Horse Trials, and the actual home of Miranda Rock, her husband, and four children. To quote from the BBC description of the 1 hour show:-

‘This series is a unique view of Britain – from below. In this first of two programmes, Dallas Campbell reveals why we can only understand the familiar world around us by discovering the hidden wonders beneath our feet. Breathtaking computer graphics strip away the earth to lay bare this secret world that’s rarely explored.

Dallas finds out how the Shard of London – the tallest skyscraper in Western Europe – stays standing on soft clay. He canoes along a secret river under the city of Bristol and discovers why Edinburgh was sited on an ancient volcano. Exploring the natural world, he abseils down an underground waterfall higher than Niagara. And beneath one of the nation’s oldest oak trees, he discovers a vast root system that’s wider and more intricate than its branches’.

After a typical 12 hour shoot, Sharon was clearly happy to have been able to analyse the radar results after the scan, ready to interview to camera, although the software did not want to play ball at one point; the picture above right is the place  she now goes to in her mind when she has a big problem – in this case, and with a seemingly insurmountable software glitch to deal with, another half an hour and the light would have gone and the shoot would have failed. Now, she goes back to ‘The log at Burghley’. Her un-failing ability to solve the problem at hand came to the fore again, and the BBC are thrilled with the arboricultural part of the programme.
But don’t just take it from us, watch on July 2nd, at 8pm, BBC, Britain Beneath Your Feet, and see why Sharon has built a career around the solution of problems in her own unique way, and saved companies such a lot of heartache……

Sharon meets Paul McAneary for architect’s new premises launch

Sharon and ex-work experience student Rory Martin recently went to the grand opening of Paul’s finished offices in WC2 – here’s what Rory made of it all before the fizz started flowing……….

Rory Martin


`Thank you very much to Sharon Hosegood at Sharon Hosegood Associates LTD for inviting me to the Grand Opening of Paul McAneary Architects. I am currently studying at the Oxford School of Architecture, the same School of Architecture Paul studied for his degree,so it was great to have the chance to chat and discuss experiences and stories with someone who had come out of the same Architecture school. It was fun to swap stories with Paul McAneary about his time at the school and couldn’t help but be inspired by the stories of his experiences once he had left. It was a lovely evening, with live music and free champagne, a great chance see where my studies can take me. The projects that the firm have worked on, displayed at the opening and more, made me excited for future projects and making the move from degree to working in practice
