The UK's Channel Five launched its new Gadget Show last night with a strong tint of Apple technology.

Presenters Adrian Simpson and Suzi Perry were shown filming The Matrix on a budget using a range of camcorders. Perry was shown editing the results on a 17-inch PowerBook G4, and used iDVD to make a DVD of the results. These results appeared impressive on the TV.

The show also recommended Apple's Final Cut Express 2 as an "excellent tool for video editing". Channel Five's Gadget Show Web site is also hosting a link to Apple's site.

The Gadget Show can be seen each Monday night on Five at 7.30pm.
