Action Replay

This exhibition went behind the scenes to discover tech, kit and tricks of the trade used to capture the drama of live sport.

From the very first TV cameras to the latest developments in online streaming, media technology has shaped how we view sport—and the way we watch some of the world’s biggest events has inspired surprising innovations.

Action Replay explored the amazing stories behind unforgettable TV moments, showed how sports events are transmitted around the world, and looked at how eSports are changing the game. You could even step into a studio and try your hand at being a commentator.
