SRC Elections Live 2012

In 2012, GUST decided to provide live coverage of the SRC elections season (again?). The format was built upon in the coming years, with at least one or two live shows featuring during each elections week since.

The week’s schedule included a presidential debate live from the GUST Studio, a live stream of the sabbatical hustings from the John McIntyre Building, and finally a whole evening of live programming produced from the Williams room, featuring recorded segments as well as live interviews, and ending with an interview with the new SRC sabbatical officers after the results announcement.

While after this experiment it was decided that GUST should rather aim to focus on single events and stand-alone segments, due to viewer attention and planning effort required, a lot was learned that night.
