A COMPANY from West Dorset will be pitching up in Glasgow this summer to lend a helping hand during the Commonwealth Games.

Doodle Computers, an IT firm based in Charmouth, is working on behalf of independent production company Open Mike Productions, which produces shows such as The Channel 4 Comedy Gala and Alan Carr, Chatty Man.

The West Dorset company has just finished IT installation work at BBC Scotland, ready for the big summer event.

This latest installation is part of ongoing work for their TV client in preparation for special shows set for broadcast during the games.

Lyme Regis resident and managing director of Doodle Computers, Bernie Fallon, said: “This latest work forms part of an ongoing 10-year working relationship with Open Mike Productions.

“It is something of which we are very proud, and highlights exactly how we like to build good working partnerships with our clients.

“We really are very excited about the Commonwealth Games this year and it’s great for us as a West Dorset company to be able to help out.

“As this partnership shows, companies from further away than ever before are working together more and more because of the internet.”

Doodle Computers was created by Bernie Fallon in October, 2003 and operates from its offices in Charmouth.

Its customer base ranges from large London televisioin companies such as Citrus Television, creators of children’s favourite Horrible Histories, providing support through all stages of production, to small independent firms such as Ocean Bathrooms based in Bridport.

Doodle specialises in all aspects of IT and provides support ranging from installation of office IT hardware, network support, data back up and security and internet telephone provision.

The 2014 Commonwealth Games will be held in Glasgow from 23 July to 3 August this year.

The event was first held in 1930 and has taken place every four years ever since, except 1942 and 1946 which were cancelled due to the Second World War.

The games are described as the third largest multi-sport event in the world, after the Olympic Games and the Asian Games.
