Facilities 50 2011 Back to Reports & survey Listing

Most of the key UK broadcasters have their own post production facilities, which are used by both inhouse and external clients. Most offer a similar set of full post services as the larger independent post houses, as detailed below

Room 6500, BBC Television Centre, London W12 7RJ
t 020 8225 6000

CEO Mark Thomas Facility managers Craig White, John O’Callaghan, Clive Hodge Customer services Julie Sangan Genres TV, music promos Credits I Can Cook, 10 O’clock Live, Strictly Come Dancing and It Takes Two Services audio (5.1), grading (2k), telecine (2k), editing, 3d, film restoration, camera hire, TV studios

“We’ve had a successful year delivering a raft of post production content for a range of customers – from EastEnders and promos for Red Bee to I Can Cook, 10 O’Clock Live and Watchdog,” says Clive Hodge, head of digital media services. “We’ve also just won full post on this year’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.”

When it comes to technology trends, Hodge echoes the points raised by the rest of the post sector: “Tapeless workflows are increasingly becoming the norm, making media management an important consideration for our clients, who rely on workflow design expertise.” BBC Studios and Post Production invested heavily in the last year on a new ‘media hub’ facility, “providing centrally managed and highly scalable systems for global file delivery, transcoding, media storage, duplication, library digitisation and file-based quality check,” says Hodge.
