European Closing Bell ran every trading day from 2003 to 2015 and covered the close of the European markets with analysis of the day’s trading and newsflow.

Live news broadcasting is always unpredictable, but especially so when you’re dealing with breaking stories with international and historic impact.

I was the studio director for particularly eventful edition of the programme which, in addition to the usual crosses to Europe and the US, saw us take in live injects from the White House for a speech from then-President Obama (at 5:30 in this video) and following a stopped countdown (24:30) the final ever launch of the Space Shuttle (25:30).
