Ben Kilner interview for BBC Sport

We had a fun day up at Glenshee ski centre in Scotland, filming an interview with professional snowboarder Ben Kilner for BBC Sport. Ben is representing Britain in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

We had also hoped to do some aerial filming of Ben doing some runs on his board but unfortunately the weather beat us on that one with wind and visibility both very poor.

Ben talked about the build up and preparations, past injuries, some of the things that help and inspire him and how some of the tricks are invented and named. It was great to meet him and we wish him all the best for the games out in Russia.

Produced by Eamonn Donohoe, Interview by David McDaid.

Austin, Texas

 The shooting range just outside Austin provided some high octane entertainment one evening and kept us pretty well focused for a while. 9mm was the order of the day and it soon felt just like being at the fairground..!
The bars on 6th Street were also ever varied with some interesting and colourful characters popping through the doors... You just never knew what was going to happen next. Drinking with the bass player from Tool and a state cop to mention but two..!
