Behind the Scenes with Rick Steves


“Rick Steves’ Europe” isn’t a fancy show even by PBS standards, but it’s no picnic to tape. In his regular column, Steves describes the process for creating his 30 minute show. It’s six days of filming both day and evening shoots. Besides Steves it’s just his producer/director and cameraman. For continuity he wears the same shirt for all filming days (someone in the comments helpfully points out that he could buy multiples of the same shirt). And the weather is a constant concern, though they will adapt by finding indoor sights if needed.
