Featured in the telecast was this custom Royal Ascot globe made by Bellerby & Co. The broadcast featured a story about the making of this globe, plus images of the Royal Ascot globe were used for transitions between the program, a.k.a., “bumps.”
In Summer 2017, NBC Sports aired horse racing live from Royal Ascot for the first time. With announcer/TV presenter Nick Luck fronting the American-ized version, most of the action was covered by ITV, which did a wonderful job.
I hope y’all at NBC were taking notes on the production, especially for Kentucky Derby coverage.
