Three episodes of the program are already shot and it must be noted that because of the lack of equipment and human resources shooting the program is quite difficult. The program is shot with the only videocamera that the studio owns. This camera is used for shooting news, videos, sermons and that is why its resource is almost run out.
In addition, close-up shots and full shots are nessecary for shooting the program and it requires minimum two videocameras. Because the ministry has got only one videocamera, shooting one episode of the program takes twice as much time and energy.
The ministry does not have studio teleprompters for the presenter to read the text. That is why the presenter has to learn several pages of the text by heart and record it twice that is very labour-intensive. Because of the above-mentioned reasons shooting the 15-minute-length program takes hours.
Shooting the program is done in the library of Tbilisi Faith Gospel Church (Pentecostal church opens the library for the team to shoot the program). Because the ministry does not have the studio for shooting the program, the team has to take green screen, lights and all the equipment to the library and after finishing the work, take them back.
As for the human resource, the presenter of the program works full-time for Georgian Christian Channel and apart from Historical Facts she works on highlighting Christian world news, does voice-over and works on other different projects. The cameraman and videographer works full-time for Georgian Christian Channel and he too has to do many other projects apart from the mentioned program.
Team of the program is made of 7 members: Natalia Chiqovani – program presenter, Nino Khuroshvili – translator, Manana Tvinikadze – editor, Sandro Dumbadze – cameraman/director, Tamar Tskhovrebadze – decorator, location manager (volunteer), Tamar Bagdavadze – producer, Giorgi Naskidashvili – translator.
