Blue Planet Live

Following the success of everyone’s favourite nature programme, TheBlue Planet, BBC Studios and FKP Scorpio created a live arena tour “to bring the wonders and mysteries of the planet’s oceans and wildlife to the UK stage.”

Hosted by Countryfile’sAnita Rani, Blue Planet II – LiveIn Concert charted a fantastical journey from icy polar seas to pulsating coral reefs on a giant screen supported by an 80-piece orchestra.

One reviewer was “totally blown away with the top-quality film and music production”, which was thanks in part to the four Avid Media Composer Suites HyperActive hired to BBC Bristol for the 20-week production. The suites were used to compile the VT packages for the show, which ran from 13th to 29th March 2019.

Meanwhile, 100TB of our Avid NEXIS storage was used in Timeline Television’s remote production gallery, linking the live shows directly to the US and Mexico.
