The Nottingham Lions gathered for a one-off, summer training session on Thursday afternoon, as the NottsTV cameras convened on the National Ice Centre, to film a special piece on the team.

The Lions are to be featured in an episode of the brand new television station's 'A Day In The Life' series, which will focus on some of the events that take place over a twenty-four hour period inside the NIC and speak to some of the people that help make the building such a special place to be.

Firstly, the cameras took to the ice, to film the boys in action doing what they do best before Kate Chaplin and her NottsTV crew retired to the changing rooms, to interview Lions Head Coach Matt Bradbury and ask him about the team's role in the NIC and the city itself.

Lions GM Danny Harrison was at the rink to help organise the shoot and was clearly pleased to see the team gaining more publicity, saying:

"It's great to see NottsTV taking and interest in the Lions and coming down here to film us today - any coverage that helps get across what we are trying to achieve here and shows the fantastic product we have on offer, has got to be a good thing."

"I think we both have a lot in common - we have a passion for this city and the people who live in it and we're constantly working hard to create something Nottingham can be rightly proud of - I hope this won't be the last time we'll be working together!"

NottsTV is a brand-new local channel, which launched this week on Freeview (Channel 8) and Virgin (Channel 159). It aims to produce an ambitious range of quality programmes that are directly relevant to the people who live, work and study in Nottingham and surrounding areas, covering local news, politics, business, sport, the arts, weather and travel.
