Timeline Delivers OB Facilities For CBeebies Christmas Show

News Image
Timeline Television has delivered full outside broadcast and post-production for CBeebies' festive musical, The Nutcracker.

Filmed at Sheffield's Crucible Theatre last month, Timeline provided a seven-camera coverage, including one radio camera, for three performances of show. These were vision mixed and iso-recorded in the outside broadcast truck, OB16, for subsequent edit at Timeline North. 

The footage was then sent to Timeline's post-production facility at MediaCityUK for the offline edit, grade and audio dub.

Upon receiving the AJA Ki Pro drives on Saturday evening, an ingest workflow was used with multiple networked machines to ensure that all the media from the Friday and Saturday recordings were backed up and ingested into Avid ready for the 9.00am start on Monday.

The offline edit had access to the main mixes and all camera isos from the dress rehearsal and two main show recordings. In addition, while the show producer and editor were cutting the main show, another suite was used to cut over 20 separate films for online, CBeebies iPlayer, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter with exclusive behind-the-scenes content, sneak peeks and karaoke versions of the songs.

Following picture lock, the project was conformed and graded in DaVinci Resolve, and dubbing mixer Richard Lee started on the audio. Richard had full access to 72 audio tracks to ensure that the dialogue and songs sounded their very best.

CBeebies' The Nutcracker will air on Friday, 16 December on the CBeebies channel at 5pm and is repeated on the channel over the next week. It will also air on BBC One on Christmas Day at 9am.
