Remembrance 2019

Post ProductionLive Workflow

A Gravity Media team was onsite at The Royal Albert Hall last Saturday, supporting the BBC’s coverage of the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance.

This year marked the 75th anniversaries of the great battles of 1944 and the collaboration and friendship of the British, Commonwealth and Allied armies who fought them. Unique tributes marked the battles of Monte Cassino, Kohima, Imphal and D-Day, culminating in a parade of some of the last surviving veterans who fought and served in 1944.

As poppy petals fell from the ceiling, the attendees fell silent to pay tribute to all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

Then, on Sunday 10th, the Gravity Media team continued their support to the BBC and CTV OB at the Remembrance Sunday service from the Cenotaph in Whitehall, where Her Majesty the Queen, members of the royal family, the prime minister and other leading politicians, and representatives of the Armed Forces gathered for the two-minute silence.

Gravity Media provided Avid Media Composer systems and a full Avid Interplay production suite to support the weekend’s transmission.
