    Recce is a military term that has been borrowed by media production in the United Kingdom, derived from "reconnoitre" "reconnoiter", the verb form of "reconnaissance". It is a pre-filming visit to a location to work out its suitability for shooting, including access to necessary facilities and assessment of any potential lighting or sound issues. The term 'recce' is also used in radio and television production.
