BBC Music Day Supported By Timeline’s Complete Broadcast Service

Timeline Television, a major provider of post-production, outside broadcast and studio-based services for every major UK network provided a complete broadcast service around BBC Music Day 2016.

Timeline Television provided full post-production for the BBC Music Day 2016 project including Ambassador films, Unsung Heroes films and the Legacy film at their MediaCityUK facility. The second BBC Music Day on June 3, aimed at uniting communities across generations, featured over 350 events throughout the UK.

The Unsung Hero films feature people from around the country who have dedicated their time to changing lives in the community through music. The five winners, selected by a BBC panel, were featured on BBC Radio 2, online and on The One Show in a BBC Music Day special shown live from the Eden Project in Cornwall, where Timeline’s team provided live OB facilities.

In house off and online editor Sion Roberts also edited a fast turnaround film with footage delivered via mediashuttle from multiple locations into our MediaCityUK facility managed by our MCR team overnight from Friday evening through to Saturday morning.

Timeline’s outside broadcast team provided a seven-camera OB facility for The One Show, presented by Alex Jones and Patrick Kielty. Guests included Nile Rodgers and Duran Duran, and a performance from Laura Mvula.

Timeline also brought four remote feeds into the show, including Colin Murray at Belfast's historic Stormont with a Game of Thrones tribute from the Ulster Orchestra, Fran Healy in Glasgow's legendary Barrowlands, where Travis performed alongside the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, and Angellica Bell celebrating music's power to connect us – from the top of the Middlesbrough Transporter Bridge.

Ulster Orchestra performed in the grounds of the Stormont Parliament Buildings in Belfast.
