Timeline Provides Post-Production On Two BBC Sport Relief Documentaries

News Image
Timeline Television North in MediaCityUK has provided BBC Sport with full post-production on both the Greg James' Sport Relief Heroes and 2020: Gareth Thomas's Tour de Trophy documentaries.

Greg James' Sport Relief Heroes is a documentary which looks at some of the most incredible challenges celebrities have completed to raise money for Sport Relief over the years.

Featuring challenges undertaken by Davina McCall, Zoe Ball, David Walliams, Eddie Izzard, John Bishop and, of course, Greg himself, this one-hour special shows how big-hearted celebrities continue to push themselves to the absolute mental and physical limits to raise millions for causes they care deeply about.

The 2020: Gareth Thomas's Tour de Trophy is a 30-minute documentary which looks back to when the rugby star cycled from Cardiff to Aberdeen, towing the 40kg Sports Personality of the Year trophy behind him - all for Sport Relief. Throughout his seven-day challenge, Gareth allowed cameras to record every minute of his struggle in the hope that this film would help change our attitudes to people living isolated lives or burdened by a social stigma, issues close to Gareth’s heart. What he hadn’t realised, though, was that the ride would change his life, too.

Timeline North co-ordinated full post-production facilities at its hub in MediaCityUK with Nick Perry, Ben Coles and Greg Emmerson providing the offline, online edits and graded using Avid Symphony. DPP file delivery was provided through Content Agent, managed by Technical Manager Chris Mann. Dubbing Mixer Luke Williams mixed the sound in Pro Tools and the series was Post Produced by Charlotte Bell.

Greg James' Sport Relief Heroes and 2020: Gareth Thomas's Tour de Trophy documentaries are both available now on BBC iPlayer.
